Description:

I'll provide more info soon as I'm a bit swamped right now, I just wanted to get the word out soon enough.

I'd like to take a reasonably sized group up the Garibaldi Lake trail, camp at Taylor Meadows and see if we can't have a bit of fun in the snow up there. I haven't actually been up there during the winter, but I hear the skiing is nice and friendly. A group has been up there two weeks ago and apparently they had lots of fun.

You might notice that I put "beginner friendly" in scare-quotes. That's to say that while this trip is indeed friendly towards beginners, it is winter time, it's going to be cold, days are short etc, and you need to be adequately prepared and have the necessary gear.

I'll go over what gear you need at the pre-trip meeting, but check http://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Gear_lists#Winter_Overnight to get an idea.

If you're unsure about any of that, don't hesitate to ask me.

The final group size that I'm willing to take depends a bit on what ratio of experienced to inexperienced I get, and of course on available car spaces.
