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 better).

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 some turns.

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 GPS, I 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.

Required Items to Bring:
Touring Gear (skis or splitboard & skins), Avi Gear (probe, shovel, beacon), Ten Essentials (see essentials.htm)
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
