Participant Information

Beginner friendly but not first trip. We would leave from Cheakamus Lake - snow condition could be marginal at lower elevation in the trees, be prepared to hike to higher elevation (bring hiking boots - I skinned up Elfin lakes on Saturday 19th and hiked the road up to 1300 meters).

  • Participants must be able comfortably to ski/ride at least black diamond runs in bounds.
  • Participants must have taken AST-1 Course
  • Participants must have a Probe, Beacon and Shovel and know how to use them

I can take 3 people and gear (plus myself)
