23rd January, although this may be subject to change! We're meeting at Mount Seymour at Guest Services (the upper parking lot).
Please Note: You must pay in advance. Time: TBA.
- Free for instructors

You will pay your driver for gas, or $6 for the shuttle bus if you don't have a ride. You may have to rent skis, boots, poles.
You will need functional telemark skis, ski poles, and ski boots. Gear is available to rent from the club room, or from Mountain Equipment Co-op.
- Call MEC well in advance to reserve gear.
We will try and maintain a student to instructor ratio of 4:1 (minimize cost to students while keeping small group sizes). Instructors will be selected as student numbers require in order of sign-up. Instructors: please indicate an appropriate skier ability for your group.
