Participant Information

We're going to approach from the south side of Martin Peak not the standard approach from Watersprite Lake. The road taken on the way up Martin Peak may be shared with snowmobiles. If you have an aversion to travel on motorized trails, it is probably not a good trip for you. We'll probably be able to drive to the powerhouse without chains. So the trip will probably start from there. Depending on snow conditions, we can elect to ski the north side or the south side on the way down.

Beacon, shovel, headlamp and ski crampons required. Ice axe recommended.
