Synopsis

A trip with our sister club VOC Okanogan. We plan to hit Needle Peak, about half-way between UBC and UBCO, just off the Coquihalla. It would offer simple terrain, with easy access for snowshoeing or skiing in. Needle peak offers opportunity for skiing and/or snowcave building. We could build a massive quinzhee big enough to stand up in and have a party!! Tents would be good to bring of you plan to maximize ski time as snowcaves can take a while to build.

Any questions, pls post on the message board. Chances are somebody else may have the same question.



Update 9th March: There weren't all that many people who could actually make the pretrip so we couldn't really discuss leaving times, stoves and food groups. I've put people into car groups based on where they live, though this may be subject to change should more people sign up and space become an issue.

I'm going to get up early tomorrow (10th) and look into travel times from Van and Kelowna to Needle. I should have an email round participants by 9am. VOCO are leaving K at 5:30am. We could either meet them at the trailhead or a pre-determined campsite (anyone know good spots? I've not been before)

If there are any more people interested I'm cutting off signup at 6pm tomorrow (10th) - I know there's a few trips that fell apart this weekend, so there are probably people looking for something to do. In the meantime if you could post tent and stove ownership on the Wiki next to your names that would be wicked.

Date

The pretrip meeting is Wednesday March 9th, 6:15pm, in the clubroom. It will start promptly, so don't be late!
