BCMC After work night hike!

BCMC

It will be dark during this hike. Headlamps and spare batteries are mandatory.

Please note that there is a $10 fee if you wish to ride the skyride down or an annual pass is $99. I normally hike back down so feel free to join me if you're so inclined. We usually stop for a drink in Altitudes Bistro at the top (optional).

 

This hike is a great conditioning hike. Short and steep - good for strength and cardio, and a great way to end an inside kind of work day!

    Great hike! First time doing this trail at night. Good to meet everyone. Thanks Bill for organizing. I won't be able to do this on Thursday again but I'll join you for every Tuesday evening hike.

    It was a very nice night. Good group, dry, great views, and beer! No snow at the top yet. Expect dramatic changes up here over the coming weeks.

    Hi Bill
    Chris and I did make it back. No worries.
    Was so hungry by the time I hit the top (no time for dinner due to the bad traffic) that I went straight for the gondola. Ordered a pizza on the way down!
    Thanks for organizing the hike.
    Cheers

    Thanks for the clarification Bill. The initial e-mail I rec'd after signing up said 'No need to go alone, bring a friend!'. So I invited a couple friends (Shannu and Chris) to join (as we do this night hike a few times a month already). I've now asked them to setup up profiles and sign up.
    Cheers

      I've approved Chris. Note that most BCOA events do not allow guests. Hosts need to know who is coming and attendees need to acknowledge the liability waiver provided with each event description.
