Easy Backcountry touring Chickadee valley

  • The next "Official" Intro to backcountry touring. Following up on the great success of our first trip to Chester lake, we will continue on to another fantastic place to play in the back-country.

    Please note that preference will be given to those that attended the Nov 22 evening meeting.

    This is a winter back-country event gear required:

    Avi beacon, probe, shovel,headlamp, bivi sac (absolutely mandatory )

    ski, boots, poles, skins ( this is a ski touring event not snow shoeing )

    toque, warm gloves, googles, sun glasses

    something warm to eat/drink, water

    dress in layers ( no cotton ) be prepared.

    down jacket, helmet ( a reallly good idea ), cookies, med kit

    Please note that this list is not all-inclusive but at starting point

    An average level of fitness is good, we will move at a moderate/slow pace. As this is now winter travel, conditions might dictate a slower pace and or route finding. Bushwhacking can/may happen.

    Make sure that you have paid for a 2012/2013 membership with the CSMC. Payment can be made online or at the meeting location. Waivers are mandatory for every trip and can be printed online or filled out at the meeting location. Cost for membership with the CSMC is $20 for 2012. Be sure to also bring extra money for car pooling costs.

    If you are for some truly awesome reason ( please use this web site if you are unable to think of one http://www.ergoware.com/blog/101-excuses-for-missing-work )  unable to attend after signing up ... then send a note through meetup. It will show up on my phone. Being a NO_SHOW causes stress and anxiety leading to fits of Turrets

    See you on the Mountain.
