Description:

Hey Everyone!

I'd like to plan an overnighter to Brohm Ridge, north of Squamish while it's still available (will be overrun by development in a few years).

I've set the date to the 16th and 19th of December, but we can discuss staying longer/shorter. 

We will also discuss access to the Brohm Ridge: either via the FSR north of Alice lake or via Elfin Lakes. 

We will be joined by director Robin Leveille (https://vimeo.com/robinleveille) since he wants to document this place in an upcoming film that will shed light on the controversial GAS "ski resort" development that will devastate this area. 

So if he has some equipment to bring up we can help out with that as well. 

**NOTE: I've set the date for 4 days to plan for bad weather and a long access to the ridge. Filming will also depend on a good weather window, so I'd like to keep options open. If you're not free for the 4 days you can still sign up, don't let that deter you! We could discuss the possibility of having a 4 day group and a 2 day group (if there's enough people of course). 

**Backcountry ski touring experience + winter camping experience is necessary.

Evening on Brohm Ridge
