Trip Planning Questions

1. Do you have your AST1? When were you certified?

Participant Information


The plan is to head up to Hollyburn Mountain for a few laps, and return by early afternoon. Depending on group dynamics, we can make it a slow or moderate pace day.

This trip is beginner-friendly. The trail is well marked and the terrain is fairly low-angle. Anyone with moderate fitness, AST1,  few ski tours under their belt, and intermediate ski/riding ability is welcome to join. 

Required gear: beacon, probe, shovel, 10 essentials. 

Meet at the trailhead at 8:00 am. It is well marked. GPS coordinates: 49.379274, -123.1911640.

Parking is either in the cross country ski area, or on the left side of Cypress Bowl Road just past the turn off for the cross country ski area (depending on the Cypress traffic directors).
