This is the sign up and organization page for an old trip. It already happened. Please do not sign up for it.

Synopsis

So exams are soon and some of us undergrads don't think we can afford to take the whole weekend of to go skiing, so let's head out for a day trip. The plan is to head to the Coquihalla (mainly so some of the elevation gain is done by driving), park at the Zopkios Ridge Lookout, and cruise up to the ski summit of Zupjok. If time allows maybe try for Alpaca Peak as well or just ski. And head back home on Saturday night, possibly for a beer.

More details on the route can be found in Baldwin ski guide.

Date

The pretrip meeting is Wednesday April 6th, 6:15pm, in the clubroom. It will start promptly, so don't be late!

The trip is April 9th , 2011
