Description:

Time is running out to learn to ski in fluffy, forgiving powder!  Soon, there will be nothing but suncups.

We'll be touring up Three Brothers Mountain in Manning Park, an area less-visited by the VOC.  It'll be beginner friendly.  Often, that just means people won't leave you behind, but this time it also means gentle terrain and relatively mellow elevation gain.  This would be a good first backcountry skiing trip, and it's fine if you've never skied before.

There won't be a pre-trip meeting, but please email or call me if you have any questions.  I'll go over other things via email.  You need to bring everything on this list, and I highly recommend helmets.  You can borrow stuff from the club.  Group size is limited to two carloads.
