Participant Information

A classic trip in the Joffre Lake area: the views from the top are mind blowing:)

Please be considerate and do NOT sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are at least an intermediate skier(can do black runs in any conditions, including trees) in the Backcountry. Most likely based on the long-term forecast, some trailbraking will be required by everyone in the group- no exceptions. If in doubt about your capabilities send me a message and we can talk about it:) 

Will be moving at a moderate-fast pace. Not for slow people, sorry.

You should be comfortable with a bit of glacier travel, very similar with Decker and Blackcomb glaciers. As of a few days ago, the reported coverage was very good.

Distance: 14km
Elevation Gain: 1200m or so
Summit area 2375m
Estimated Time: 7-8hrs

 

MUST have :

  • AST1 training
  • Shovel, probe and avi beacon
  • Food and water for the whole day
  • First aid kit!
  • Ski Helmet
  • Headlamp with spare batteries
