Description:

Can only ski Sunday this weekend. Wondering if there would be interest in a ski trip possibly to Paul's Ridge. If the group ends up being somewhat more experienced or adventurous we could consider alternative destinations. The aim would be to get out for some activity and general merriment.

EDIT: Please make sure you have the following gear:

Alpine Touring (AT) skis or Telemark skis or Split board
Boots compatible with skis or split board
Ski poles
Climbing skins (must fit your skis or split board)
Avalanche transceiver (also known as a beacon)
Probe
Shovel

Club gear can be rented for free, but you need to bring cash deposit (see: http://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Gear_rental).
Club hours for today (Thursday) and tomorrow (Friday) are 12:30-13:30 and 12:00-13:00. MEC is also an option for rental but won't be free.
If you are completely new to backcountry ski travel (need advice) or have other questions, do holler. 

Cheers,
Nicole
