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

Synopsis

In what has now become an annual tradition, many VOCers head to the Brian Waddington Hut (at Phelix Creek) to celebrate the New Year and shred the local gnar. It is the largest of all of our huts, and arguably one of the most beautiful, making for a pretty awesome New Years party. The hut can nominally hold 24, but we've had over 30 in the past. Stay for as long as you want. You're welcome to come and go as you please. Please note that this is not a guided/instructional trip, but more of a gathering of like minded powder hounds. However, if you've never been to the hut before, you'll most likely find someone willing to show you the way.

The terrain isn't exactly friendly for people who have never skied before, but you don't need to be an expert to come. Having done an AST (Avalanche Skills Training) course (or equivalent) is highly recommended. Most of the slopes surrounding the hut are generally labeled "intermediate" or "advanced", but there are some very short beginner level runs behind the hut.

Trip Coordinator

Nobody is actually organizing this, because if somebody was, then they would be responsible for retrieving parties that got lost on the way in. Expect your car group to be self sufficient. Probably this means having at least one person in your car that knows the way in.

Date

December 26th, 2011 - January 2nd, 2012

Equipment List

The hut is not heated and can be a little chilly when less than 10 bodies are there, so bring a warm sleeping bag.

Sign up

Note: Dates can vary

The purpose of this list is to figure out how full the hut is going to be on each night (and when the good partying is!) Please sign up for the nights you are sleeping in the hut. If you plan on leaving on January 2nd, sign up for January 1st as your last night. Also indicate beside your name the days you are arriving and leaving. This will help people find cars and also fill their cars more efficiently.

Put two stars after your name if it is your first night. This is to help everyone figure out what's going on.
