Participant Information

This trip is suitable for newer backcountry skiers. You should have experience with your backcountry equipment. Intermediate skiing ability is required. Distance is long, and the pace will be friendly, so expect to be back after dark. Experienced backcountry skiers are welcome and sharing of tips and tricks would be most appreciated.

The trip starts at the parking lot of Manning park ski resort. We will skin up their approved line of backcountry travel, along the horseshoe run (green run). Then we get to the backcountry towards Poland lake.  We follow the skin up track for around 3km to get to the lake. After having our lunch there, we head back, again skinning up, for 3km to get back to the horseshoe run. We ski down the green run to get back to the parking lot. Depending on the group preference and conditions, we might visit (and do laps on) Grassy mountain on our way to Poland lake.

Gear required: 10 Essentials (https://www.mountaineers.org/blog/what-are-the-ten-essentials). Avalanche safety gear. Please bring a headlamp suitable for skiing at night along with your enthusiasm.
