Main article: Tele School


January 26th, 2008


Seymour Resort (Weather Permitting)

Meet at 9:00am in the Day lodge.

Please bring cash to pay for the tickets. The cheapest way is to buy booklets and divide the cost between your instructor groups. Cost for a 5 ticket booklet is ~$45 for each student including the instructor's ticket and taxes.

Dry School

There will be a dry school on Tuesday, 22 Jan., at 5:30pm in the Clubroom to coordinate rides and gear. There will be a gear master and instructors to help you select gear if needed.

Learning Material

Please indicate here if you have a car, where you are leaving from and how many people you can transport.

Driver's Name [Leaving from,# of passengers]

Melissa Hogg Klaus the Rocket is fixed! (leaving from East Van, 3 spots, call if you want a ride (604.202.9414))

  1. Emily Beach? I got your message but your number was garbled. Call me in the morning if you still need a ride.

Santi Ramon Sorry, I cannot make it this weekend. So, no rides.

Mahdi Eynian - 808-5476 [Leaving from UBC, only 1 passenger due to "Novice" driving license, can get 2 more if one passenger has a license and is +25years old]

ICBC says if you have a novice licence, then to carry more than one passenger your supervisor needs to be "25 years or older with a valid Class 1 - 5 driver's licence" [1] - presumably that means class 1-5 B.C. licence and Anne would not be sufficient. Scott still has space so you could get him to take one of your passengers, then you only have one, unless Maggie is 25+ and has a BC licence. --Matthew 00:15, 23 January 2008 (PST)

Thanks Matthew, but I already have called ICBC about this and they have told me that Any Valid Drivers' license (one which is suitable for driving a car) works for this. In case if the license is not in English or French, there should be an official translation of the license.

I have a french driving licence (from France) and an american too (from california) and I am over 25 so we should be good :) Anne

  1. Anne Vialettes (14th and Trimble)
  2. Hillary Ward (16th and Trutch)

Seth Adams [4th + Trafalgar, 3 passengers. I'm not doing tele school, I'm taking an avalanche course that starts at 8. So I have to be there an hour before you do, and I can't be late so if you are running late I'll leave you behind. You also need to either come to me or be easy to pickup.]

Tracy Wilkinson

Scott Webster FULL [19th + Oak, 3 passengers, car doors will probably freeze shut]

  1. Steve Mullen (11th & Burrard -- have bike, will travel)
