In what has now become an annual tradition, many VOCers head to the Brian Waddington Hut (at Phelix Creek) to celebrate the New Year and shred the local gnar. It is the largest of all of our huts, and arguably one of the most beautiful, making for a pretty awesome New Years party. The hut can nominally hold 24, but we've had over 30 in the past. Stay for as long as you want. You're welcome to come and go as you please. Please note that this is not a guided/instructional trip, but more of a gathering of like minded powder hounds. However, if you've never been to the hut before, you'll most likely find someone willing to show you the way.
The terrain isn't exactly friendly for people who have never skied before, but you don't need to be an expert to come. Having done an AST (Avalanche Skills Training) course (or equivalent) is highly recommended. Most of the slopes surrounding the hut are generally labeled "intermediate" or "advanced", but there are some very short beginner level runs behind the hut.
The Lord of Phelix
This years lord is Haley Foladare. The Lord of Phelix is in charge while up at the Hut over new years. Look for the Lord while up at the Hut if you have any questions or have any concerns.
December 27th, 2016 - January 2th, 2017
Note that these dates are open to your interpretation!
The hut is not heated and can be a little chilly when less than 10 bodies are there, so bring a warm sleeping bag. Some people may prefer to tent outside, but if it's -30C outside and +5C inside, that's a fairly compelling reason to sleep inside.
Snorkels are optional.
Note: Dates can vary depending on what your group decides to do
The purpose of this list is to figure out how full the hut is going to be on each night (and when the good partying is!) Please sign up for the nights you are sleeping in the hut. For example, if you plan on leaving on January 2nd, sign up for January 1st as your last night. Please note if you intend on sleeping in a tent.
Drivers: Please indicate here where you are leaving from, and when, and how many people you can transport.
Passengers: It is up to you to contact your driver as soon as possible and tell him/her that you want a ride. At that time you can discuss departure time and place, sharing of food, stoves, etc. Once you have done this, you should take your name off the "carless people" list.
Signing yourself up in a car does not mean that you are actually going to get picked up. Make sure to contact the driver!
