Participant Information

Aiming for Goat Mountain either from Swamp Creek or trail #673, TBD. Both have drawbacks. Both Twin Lakes and Hannegan roads are snowed in so we will ski right from the Mount Baker Highway. The goal is to ascend the west peak and ski the north face and gully down to Twin Lakes road.

For experienced backcountry skiers in good condition. Out of province medical insurance recommended. Travel to U.S.A. requires passport or EDL. No pot, fresh fruit, veggies, meat or alcohol, please. Beacon, shovel required.

The meeting spot in Vancouver is the intersection of North Grandview Hwy and Penticton Street in East Van at 6:00 AM. If there's people coming from Coquitlam, we'll meet them at Crash Crawley's rock gym, 1300 Woolridge Street in Coquitlam at 6:30 AM.
