Participant Information


We will ski up the Fat Dog trail in Manning Park. Here is a map. I'd like to try to get to the top of Big Buck mountain, but I'm not sure we will get that far. The distance is somewhat long at 20km, but the elevation gain of 900m is reasonable.

Most of the skiing here is low angle, but there is some skiing on a narrow old logging road that beginner downhill skiers might find challenging. It should be okay for anyone who can ski blue runs at Whistler.

Gear required: Avalanche gear (transceiver, probe, shovel), AT, tele, or splitboard equipment, headlamp, food, water, extra layers

Welcome additional gear: GPS, PLB, camera, first aid kit.
