Participant Information

De Pencier Bluff is just East of Mt Seymour.  The southern slopes should have moderate runs of up to 250 vertical meters through mature forest.

I have hiked in this area, but I haven't skied there before. It's relatively low elevation, but it should be good with recent weather.


It's only 3km and 300m elevation gain, so there will be time for multiple laps. People new-ish to ski touring are welcome to join. The terrain has more small cliffs and gullies than you might expect from topo maps, but I don't expect anything too difficult.
