Description:

This is posted much ahead of time to help participants collect appropriate clothing over time.

In 2017, VOC is celebrating its 100th anniversary. This maybe is in some form a tip of the hat to the folks who went into the mountains long before the days of Gore-tex Lycra 850-fill down, though really, the purpose is for fun.

The idea is to do cross the Garibaldi Neve, a classic ski traverse in the Coast Mountains, clad in old-school skiing/mountaineering attire.*

Wool 3-piece suits, skirts, suspenders, caps?

This trip will be open to those who have gone on overnight trips on skis before. This means having skinned up into the mountains, sleeping in a tent/hut, knowing how to generally take care of yourself in the mountains.
