Participant Information

Basic outline:
Find the end of the drivable road up Shannon Branch 02. Skin towards Sky Pilot and Ledge. Get in a couloir lap to how the group decides.

Mandatory equip:
Skis or splitboard, mountain travel gear, etc. You know what you need.

Other suggested gear:
Verts/plates/crampons. There has been little traffic up here all season and booting up a couloir could be a challenge.

Nice if you have them (I carry all of these):
Phone in IP67 case (If you use a mapping app, bring a phone battery pack)
Topo (NRCAN or an app) / Notebook

Meetup and other deets:
Meet at 10U 489407E 5504018N at 6:50 for a 7:00 convoy. Bring a capable vehicle, likely with chains. Carpooling is, for all intents and purposes, not permitted as per BCMC COVID-19 Guidelines.

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.
