Participant Information

Basic outline:

I am tending to a significant back injury and I plan to go for an easy ski tour at Seymour. Priority 1 will be skinning, priority 2 is snow science, priority 3 is getting turns. Please sign up only if your expectations are similarly low.

Mandatory equip:

Touring skis or splitboard, mountain travel gear, etc. You know what you need.
Appropriate PPE (mask) in case we are grouped tightly for some reason.

Other suggested gear:


Meetup and other deets:

07:45 meeting at 49°22'01.8"N 122°56'57.7"W (40 meters south of the BC Parks kiosk at the northerly west corner of the Seymour parking lots). 7:50 departure. I won't wait for stragglers. Ride arrangement to the meeting point is on-your-own.

COVID-19 screening link:

After answering the questions, the tool must return a "You do not need a COVID-19 test at this time" or a "You don't appear to have symptoms of COVID-19" result.
