Participant Information

I've reserved 8 spots at Elfin Lakes for Friday and Saturday night. I envision leaving Friday afternoon to arrive at the hut Friday evening, but some people can leave earlier Friday if their schedules allow.

On Saturday, I'd like to tour toward Mamquam Lake and Pyramid Mountain. I've never been over that way before, and I want to scout the area for a possible future traverse from Mamquam icefield. Pyramid Mountain is not a good objective for beginners; it is a long way from the hut and the terrain is steep and complex. Beginners and other people wanting a more mellow outing are welcome to join the trip provided that they are prepared to ski separately on Saturday. I'll use the screening questions to ensure that there's enough people with similar goals.

The total cost for the hut is $33.15 per person.
