This will be a beginner-friendly trip to somewhere
in the Coquihalla area or Manning Park (such as
Zoa Peak or the Fat Dog trail). I'm open to other
trip ideas in the Coquihalla or Manning Park (with
an ATES rating of simple or challenging) depending
on conditions and the preference of the group.
Participants must have AST-1 and be able to ski
blue runs in any conditions.
On the weekend prior to the trip, we'll discuss
conditions, the bulletin, and confirm our
destination and route. If the avi conditions are
too spicy, we’ll reschedule the trip (potentially
for another weekday the same week if things look
The pace will be slow to moderate and will afford
time to practice skills (e.g. companion rescue
practice, snow pit analysis, and navigation with
topo map and compass) in addition to getting in
I would like to meet at our destination at 8:00am
and travel separately by car. I would like to keep
the group size to a maximum of four to both
facilitate physical distancing and mitigate
parking demands at the trailhead.
Extra Note: While I have a dedicated backcountry
navigate primarily by map and compass and would be
happy to teach some of these skills if you have
the interest. If this is of interest, you should
have a good topo map (the Baldwin Coquihalla map
and/or the Clark Geomatics Manning Park map) and
baseplate compass (adjustable declination is nice
to have and both adjustable declination and
sighting mirror is even nicer to have). Either
way, you should have a map and compass as part of
your ten essentials.
