I. Trip Reports

1) Mount Frosty West Peak
Scott and Sandra headed out skiing to Manning Park in some great
weather up Mount Frosty. On the way they got to check out the Larches.
Read the TR if you're curious as to what those are.

II. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) Gear Swap May 3-4
Want to grab some nifty gear? The MEC gear swap is this Sunday. Pick
up gear for yourself or the club. (Check with the gearmasters first if
buying for the club.) There'll be a contingent of VOCer's there, with
Piotr planning
on arriving at around 1pm. Remember, they only take cash. Sign up on the wiki.

4) Chilkoot Trail July

A description from Emma Vardy-Bragg:

Sometimes referred to as the "toughest 33 miles in history", the
Chilkoot trail is the route that many gold hungry prospectors took
through the Coast Mountains (from Dyea, Alaska) to Bennett in B.C in
order to reach the Klondike Gold Fields in the 1890's. Supplies in
this remote region were limited and each man had to have by law "one
tone of food and supplies to be able to cross the boarder into
Canada".

Hiking way up North! Some logistics and rough dates are on the message board.
