This is a pre-trip meeting for members signed up for the

August 1, 2, 3, 4, 2013:WAPTA ICEFIELDBACKPACKING TRIP”!!!

This meeting is intended help participating members prepare for the up coming trip. All details regarding safety, logistics, gear, clothing, food, and other will be discussed. Please be prepared to ask question.

It is your responsibility to make sure you have acquired all necessary equipment, clothing, and food for this trip. All outdoor activities involve a certain degree of risk, so it is up to you to be prepared, self-reliant, responsible, cautious, and aware of surrounding hazards. As well, mountain weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for unforeseen changes. For safety reasons, if you show up for this event unprepared or with inappropriate clothing and or gear you will not be permitted to continue on the trip.

It is my intent to empower members to take responsibility and gain backcountry experience and knowledge. This event should be viewed as a learning experience as well as a fun filled trip.

At the meeting all required permits and or reservations need to be presented to the trip organizer, or you risk being removed from the trip. Any fees incurred by the group leader for your participation in the trip must be paid in full by this date. Fees paid by the group leader will be non- refundable and non-transferable (this trip involves commitment).

If you have any questions I can be contacted at [masked]

    Hi Jadie,

    This trip is more than just a backpacking trip requiring additional skills. The group for this trip has been chosen based on ability and skill set. I will not be adding other members to this trip unless someone drops out and then I will be hand picking someone from one of my previous trips. Please feel free to sign up for one of my other trips this summer. There will be more backpacking trips posted soon.

      Feel free to add your name to the waiting list on other trips I have posted. I post trips very early, so there will likely be someone dropping off the trips.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
