Participant Information

Backcountry skiing from Gibsons Pass Road in Manning Park. We drive to Lightning Lake and head up the Frosty Mountain trail to the east peak. From the summit, we will probably descend the NE face and a couple of steep pitches (up to 35 degrees) down Frosty Creek to Lightning Lake. The Frosty Creek descent in its lower reaches can be challenging as it crisscrosses the creek on large logs.

Suitable trip for intermediate or better skiers. Fitness level must be reasonable but you don't need to be a marathon runner. The one way trip is about 10 km with 1200 meters of elevation gain. Depending on the trail breaking and avalanche conditions, we may reach the summit.

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

Bring cash to share in the transportation costs. If people try to contact me, email is preferred. Don't send text messages. I don't receive them.

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. If there's people coming from Coquitlam, we'll meet them at Crash Crawley's rock gym, 1300 Woolridge Street in Coquitlam at 6:50 to 7:00 AM. People from Surrey, we'll meet at the 160th Street park and ride at 7:00 to 7:10 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 7:45 to 8:00 AM.
