Participant Information

BCMC Trial brisk mid-week hike/microspike

We will meet at the Grouse Grind entrance at 9:15 and head up BCMC for a brisk hike returning around noon.  As of yesterday ( Thanks for the scoop to ElaineF) spikes were useful from about the 15/50 marker.  I'll be taking micro-spikes and poles...  

Once we are at the top of BCMC we have a few options depending on timing and everyone's preference. We can decide once at the top.   1. Hike back down. If anyone wants to do this I will hike back down so nobody is left alone for the hike. 2. Take the gondola back down if you like.  3. This is only if nobody wants to do option 1.. Hike up some portion of the Snowshoe Grind, as time allows, and then take the gondola or hike back down.  

PLEASE NOTE: You may have to reserve a download ticket in advance if you want to take the gondola down.

Please bring your 10 essentials, suitable clothing, micro-spikes etc.  Currenly the forecast is for a mix of sun and cloud in the morning.
