Description:

The Chilliwack River Valley is a place rarely visited on skis by the VOC. Maybe that's for good reason; maybe it isn't. This is a trip to find out. But if it looks anything like this, it should be fantastic.

We'll be exploring Flora Peak just north of Chilliwack Lake. We'll start on a trail, then break off around treeline and camp somewhere near Flora's west ridge. Sunday morning, we can head up to the summit, ski a few laps, or just hide in our sleeping bags. 

This trip is beginner friendly. Skiing will likely be a bit steep on the trail, and we will gain about 800m elevation on Saturday, depending on where we set up camp. If you have already done some hut trips, this should be a great trip to expand your skills. If you have neither skiing nor camping experience, you're in for type two fun, but you're welcome to join.

Here's the gear list, and you'll need to bring all of the personal items on it. Helmets are highly recommended for skiing through the trees.

This trip will take place on the traditional, unceded territory of the Ts'elxweyeqw people.
