Participant Information

This trip filled up fast! I will be speaking to members and reviewing answers and applicants this week.  I am wanting to keep the trip to 4/5 people. 


Skihist Mountain is the highest of the loosely defined region of “SW British Columbia” and is also the 7th most prominent peak of the entire province. The ascent is entirely non-technical via the standard south face route, but the challenge has been the access since the deactivation of Kwoiek Creek FSR a dozen years ago. This peak had become one of those that boasts more epic stories of failure than the glamorous success. I wouldn’t say it’s a difficult fair to successfully ascend Skihist Mountain especially in a single try but to lay it out that way does require some meticulous planning and executing.

The trip is planned for mid to late June so there is some snowcover to avoid endless scree hopping and hopefully bushwhacking.

Trip itinerary will be posted in the coming weeks with dates, departures, driving directions, route finding and navigation details (after participants are screened and added).  The trip is committing- 3 days would be ideal to leave room for travel, poor weather conditions, and other exploratory adventures in the area (bonus peaks).

As this is a bcmc sponsored trip avalanche training and awareness and gear is required.  10 essentials mandatory.  
Adequate Fitness is a huge asset.
