Participant Information

Loop the Lake

Manning Park Ski Tour to Poland Lake

20km of early season powdery goodness :)

This trip is suitable for new-to-backcountry skiers. You should have experience with your backcountry equipment. Intermediate skiing ability is required. Touring/skinning difficulty is considered easy/basic... however, for early season the distance is moderate to long. Depending on conditions, we might explore the Grassy Mountain area near Gibson Pass and head toward Poland Lake. Return is downhill on a Manning Park ski run. The pace will be friendly with re-grouping, so expect to be back after dark (bring headlamp suitable for skiing.)
