Participant Information

We will be parking in the Alexander Falls backcountry lot and accessing via the Backcountry Access Route.

This trip requires backcountry ski experience. Participants should be fairly fit and be prepared to move at good pace all day.

Participants must bring backcountry ski gear, avi gear, and headlamps (w spare batteries). Crampons are recommended for the top section which is often wind blasted and icy. Ski crampons are also a good idea on this type of trip. 

No one leaves until everyone is out.

Please note: This is a fast paced day trip requiring a high level of fitness and previous backcountry ski experience and is not suitable as a first trip with the club. You must be able to independently navigate in the mountains. I have posted a GPS track of our planned route.

Distance: 23 km
Elevation Gain: 1514 m
Summit: 2314 m
Estimated Time: 9 hrs

 

I'll be posting final trip conditions and info within 24 hours of the trip start. We will be organizing rides at St Davids. If you have special ride requirements please post them in the Planning Forum.

Please ensure the phone number on your BCMC profile matches the number of the cell phone you will be carrying with you.
