Participant Information

Mount Outram is a classic ski trip. Round trip is about 18 km. Total elevation gain is 1800 meters. There is the possibility of skiing the basin SW of the peak. Be prepared for adventure! We will be proceeding at a moderate pace. It is not a race to the summit.

You need headlamp, spare batteries, skis, shovel, probe and beacon. In terms of skiing ability, you need to be competent skiing steep trees, big alpine slopes and narrow trails. You also need to be physically fit to climb 1800 meters in a day and still have enough reserves to ski difficult terrain.

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 6:20 AM. People from Abbotsford or Agassiz, we'll meet at the Tim Horton's in Sardis at the intersection of Vedder Road with Luckakuck Way, opposite the street from a Husky station at 7:10 AM.
