Participant Information

Backcountry skiing from Highway 3 in Manning Park. We drive to Eastgate and head up the Pasayten River logging road to Spruce Bowl Road at KM 14. From there it is about 10 kilometers to the summit with approximately 1000 meters elevation gain. This is a somewhat exploratory trip that might involve dense trees on the approach. We skied Chuwanten last week and the route was really good. I'm planning on heading up one creek bed to the north this time to approach Chuwanten N1. As such, the route chosen is an unknown. If it's really bad, we can backtrack to Chuwanten.

Suitable trip for intermediate or better skiers. Fitness level must be reasonable but you don't need to be an ultra marathon runner.

Headlamp required and spare batteries. Avalanche beacons, shovels required. Bring warm clothes.

Driver premium for this trip. There is a lot of mileage to cover and about 14 km of wilderness road to travel. Cost range per person $30 to $50 but discretionary to the driver. We require 4WD vehicles for this trip. Participation is dependent upon the availability of suitable vehicles for wilderness road travel. Approximately 3 hours driving each way.

The meeting spot in Vancouver is the intersection of North Grandview and Penticton Street in East Van at 6:00 AM. Note that North Grandview is north of Grandview Highway across the railway and Skytrain tracks. If there's people coming from Coquitlam, we'll meet them at Crash Crawley's rock gym, 1300 Woolridge Street in Coquitlam at 6:20 to 6:30 AM. People from Surrey, we'll meet at the 160th Street park and ride at 6:30 to 6:40 AM. People from Abbotsford or Agassiz, we'll meet at the Tim Horton's in Sardis at the intersection of Vedder Road with Luckakuck Way, opposite the street from the Husky station at 7:15 to 7:30 AM.
