Description:

Ski season is just around the corner! And nothing gets me excited for snow like hiking in ski boots with skis on my back up to the VOC's very own, very cozy, Brew hut. Last year we had beautiful, sunny weather and just enough snow to make the people who left their skis behind regret having left their skis behind. Other years have featured getting turned around on the sea-to-sky, calling off the trip half way up the trail because of pouring rain, and 17 hour epics with exhausted, dehydrated bodies reaching the hut in the wee hours of the morning, to name a few.

So I make no promises as to what will be accomplished. This is a beginner-friendly trip; you need not ever have seen snow before in your life, although you must make every effort to come prepared. We will have a detailed discussion about what "prepared" means during the pre-trip meeting. There will be some experienced people along to lend a hand when needed, they are not guides by any means but I have recruited them for their super-human patience.
