Participant Information

Ski  into the Watersprite Hut and explore the surroundings for the weekend.  Participants must be solid back country skiers or snow shoers in all types of terrain and snow conditions, with an overnight pack on.  Beginners are welcome, but you must be fit.  MJust have AST 1 or equivalent and a set of avalanche gear (probe, shovel, beacon).    The hut rental is $10 for BCMC members.  Transportation is about $25 - $35.  We meet at St. Davids Church at 6:00 am on Saturday morning Feb 1 and return on Sunday Feb 2.  The area around the cabin has some excellent, steepish runs, up to about 400 m in length if weather and conditions allow.  To reserve your spot you must send an etransfer of $10 for the hut fee once you have been moved to the confirmed list.  This is a non refundable fee.  Due to the popularity of these trips, please don't sign up unless there is a good chance you will participate.
