3) Intro to Backcountry Skiing, Feb 7-8
An introduction to skiing in the backcountry. Skiing in the backcountry is a lot different than skiing in a resort for a bunch of reasons, including snow conditions, routefinding, avalanche danger etc. This trip is geared to introduce people to these differences so they can learn to be more confident heading into the wilderness in winter (on skis).

4) Intro to Ski Mountaineering, Feb 20-22
This is a mixed-friendly trip. You can adjust, somewhat, the difficulty level. The basic idea is to go up to the Burton hut Friday, get VOCers on top of as many of the peaks around there as possible Saturday, and cross the Neve to get out on Sunday.

5) Red Rocks Reading Week Trip, Feb 14-22
Vancouver is foggy, cold, and wet - so why not head down to Red Rocks/Las Vegas for Reading Break? Check out the wiki to arrange partners and rides.
