Participant Information

The plan is to skin up Hollyburn, ski down the NW side, skin up to Strachan, ski down Christmas Gully, skin up Black, ski back to the parking lot.

The NW side of Hollyburn and Christmas Gully have some steep bits, so you should be comfortable skiing black runs. The total distance is not too great, and there are many options for cutting things short, so you need not have a lot of touring experience.


Gear required: avalanche gear (transceiver, probe, shovel), AT, tele, or splitboard equipment, headlamp.
