Participant Information

***If you have never skied with me, you MUST contact me before signing up***

You must be open for a plan B, in case the forecast for this area is not very good: Callaghan area, for example.

I have tried to go in this area for many years, so let's see if this year the weather works in our favor:)

An amazingly huge area that barely gets any traffic due to the long approach from Vancouver.

Please read the info provided by those 2 links and do your research before signing up.



The rough plan(final details will be done in a planning zoom meeting with the trip participants):

Friday April 7th: Carpool to the Blowdown parking lot and go to the camping spot( there is a frozen lake in the area, very well protected). Ski some mellow slopes to assess the snow conditions.

Saturday April 8th: Ski Eeyore/Tiger peak areas...

Sunday April 9th: do some more skiing in the AM, then pack and leave after lunch. Drive back to Vancouver.

Winter camping experience is required. 

Will coordinate in the forum any tent/gear sharing.


Please be considerate and do NOT sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are at least an intermediate skier(can do black runs in any conditions, including trees) in the Backcountry. If in doubt about your capabilities send me a message and we can talk about it:).  Minimum of 20 days of backcountry skiing experience is required top join this trip.

Will be moving at a moderate-fast pace. Not for slow people, sorry.

MUST have :

AST1 training
Shovel, probe and avi beacon

Winter camping gear
