Participant Information

We'll drive up Furry Creek Main until we get stopped by snow. I have a key to the gate. Beacon, shovel, headlamp, spare batteries required. Ice axe and ski crampons optional.  There are probably a few open creeks across the trail in the first 2 km. The skiing may be challenging at times. Not suitable for snowboards or intermediate skiers.

The destination (Ben Lomond or Capilano) will depend on how far we get up the road and on snow conditions.

Please bring cash to compensate drivers (no e-transfers). Bring up to $20 but the cost may be less depending on numbers. Don't text me. I don't receive texts on my phone. Use email.
