Itinerary:
Ideally I would like to camp Friday night, an hour or two up the trail (St Marks Summit?) if the group can leave Friday evening. Trip also needs a car at both ends (Cypress Bowl and Porteau Cove) as it is a point to point trail. Saturday night: Camp near the Lions. Sunday night: Camp on Brunswick Mtn or by B. Lake. Monday: head out to Porteau Cove and drive back.

Required Items to Bring:
Snowshoes (I have spare pairs to lend out if needed) - no previous experience required! Camping gear. Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses!
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Camera - lots of awesome views.
