Participant Information

This trip will be for participants of the Intro to backcountry ski course. You learned how to put your skins on and set up your gear, now lets go somewhere. Location will be Poland lake at Manning park. This will involve skinning in both directions with very little downhill. There will be a $10 single use lift ticket to be purchased at the resort.

This is intended for members that are inexperienced and unsure about joining club trips, so if you have been getting out for a few weekends please leave the space for those trying to make the leap.


Grandview meeting info:

The meeting spot in Vancouver is the intersection of North Grandview and Penticton Street in East Van at 6:30 AM. Note that North Grandview is north of Grandview Highway across the railway and Skytrain tracks.
