|We will meet at the Starbucks near Canadian Tire in Squamish at
(40147 Glenalder Pl #105) where we will sign waivers and review the
avalanche conditions for the day.
From Starbucks we will carpool to the Diamond Head parking lot
where we will gear up and skin to the Red Heather hut (5km, 500m
gain, about 1.5 hours).
After a quick snack and bio break, we'll do some companion rescue
practice, then spend the afternoon making observations about the
snow and weather, talking about terrain and practicing our skinning
techniques on the slopes above the hut while we ski a couple of laps.
We will ski out mid-to-late afternoon, aiming to return to the cars for
about 4, 4:30pm.
Preference will be given to people who have taken the ACC intro to
backcountry ski course and are looking to gain experience.
Please email me a short description of your backcountry ski
experience and your avalanche training (you can find my email
address by clicking on my name). |
