Participant Information

Flora Peak is immediately north of Chilliwack Lake. The trailhead is just inside Chilliwack Park. The trail starts at 635 m elevation, so we may need to carry skis for the first kilometer. Here's a webcam very close to the trailhead. It's only 5km to the peak, but with 1300m elevation gain.

The most challenging part of the trip is likely to be descending the lower portion of the trail through the forest with marginal snow coverage.

Suitable trip for intermediate or better skiers. Fitness level must be reasonable but you don't need to be a marathon runner.

Headlamp required and spare batteries. Avalanche beacons, shovels required. Bring warm clothes.

If people try to contact me, email is preferred. Don't send text messages. I don't receive them on my home phone. My cell number is 604 785-9848. It does receive text messages but I only turn it on sporadically during the trip meet up.

The meeting spot in Vancouver is the intersection of North Grandview and Penticton Street in East Van at 6:30 AM. Note that North Grandview is north of Grandview Highway across the railway and Skytrain tracks. If there's people coming from Coquitlam or points east, we'll meet at the Tim Horton's in Sardis at the intersection of Vedder Road with Luckakuck Way, opposite the street from the Husky station at 7:30 to 8:00 AM.
