I. Upcoming Events and Trips

1) Intro to Backcountry Skiing, Feb 7-8
There are a few spots left. Contact the trip leader if you’d like to grab one of them.

2) Holy Neve Trip Batman Feb 14-16
Neve traverse at the beginning of spring break.

3) 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.

4) Self propelled UBC to Mount Baker, Reading Weak
Looking at the wiki, it seems the precise dates aren’t determined. If you’d like to go you should get in contact soon.

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.

6) VIMFF, Feb 20-28
A week of films about the mountains. VOCers get discount tickets if you sign up on the wiki ahead of time.

III. Ms. Manners

Dear Ms. Manners,

I have this friend that I like to go on trips with. He's always positive, a great guy in general and a great skier. The problem is that he likes to eat totally bizarre things, like an entire block of cheese drenched with mustard for one meal, dehydrated cuttlefish with instant noodle flavor packs for the next, etc. Often after accomplishing one of his gastronomical feats he proceeds to totally pollute the tent. I've tried dropping the hints that maybe he'd... lets say... be healthier if he were to eat like a normal person but he hasn't seemed to have clued into what I'm getting at.

The next time I see him eating a big bag of dried lentils, should I come out and lay it on the line or should I just steal two lentils and jam one up each of my nostrils?

-Scrunches

Please Help Ms. Manners out. Please contribute materiel.
