Login to Join BCMC Trips

You must login in order to sign up online for one of the BCMC Trips. If you don't have a BCMC membership account then please obtain one.  If you'd prefer to learn more before joining then please join as a 30-day Guest member.   Some trips are BCMC members only.

Participant Information

Drive down Friday evening (June 28th) or early on Saturday morning to begin the trail. Camping high on Saturday night - summit attempt on Sunday. Camp again on Sunday and walk our on Monday. 

The following is required of all participants:

  • Previous mountaineering experience in an unguided trip
  • Training in glacier travel, crevasse rescue, and avalanche skills
  • Appropriate equipment and familiarity with its use, including - but not limited to - a four-season tent (used in winter conditions), as well as a harness, crevasse rescue, and potentially avalanche rescue gear (TBD)
  • Valid passport and ability to enter America
  • A previous trip with the organizer, or with a BCMC member well-known to the organizer(s)

Gear required:
- Crampons and ice axe
- Rope (1 per 3 people)
- Harness, helmet
- Crevasse rescue equipment
- Overnight camping gear and tent
- Headlamp/torch
- 10 essentials, other gear

Insurance:
STRONGLY CONSIDER trip insurance for the trip. Do you want to get bankrupt because you slipped and hurt your ankle?

Border:
You MUST have a valid passport or other travel document enabling you to cross the US border. Arrange your ESTA visa in advance to save time at the border if you need one.
Do NOT use the nexus lane unless everyone has a nexus card. Don't take fruit/vegetables across the border, it's not worth the hassle/risk - you can buy vegetables in the US easily, and no doubt you will enjoy the additional selection of food not available in Canada anyway.

Emergency Info: 
Make sure your Emergency contact is up to date. You will need this to attend the trip.
