Description:

I have a 4 day break before my last exam, so I'm going to take one of those days off.

Plan is to go yoyo skiing somewhere, probably Elfin lakes/paul ridge.

If you are a beginner, the following are rather recommended...so please take the initiative to do the first two for sure.

 

-Take a look at the online avalanche course: [url=http://www.avalanche.ca/cac/training/online-course]Online avi course[/url]

-Attend a beacon search practice (check them out on the agenda (there's one right after the Jared Stanley Lecture))

-Reasonable fitness

 

Trip is tentative on weather.

 

What to bring-(VERY IMPORTANT).

Edit: Trip is now being run by Katherine, who wants to get people to ski which is awesome of her.
