Revision as of 14:19, 24 October 2018

Synopsis

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.

Trip Details:

December 27th, 2018 - January 3rd, 20179

Note that these dates are open to your interpretation! You can stay for as long or as little as you like. Some go up for a few days, others go up just for New Years Eve.

Trip Agenda: https://www.ubc-voc.com/tripagenda/details.php?tripid=1921

Equipment List

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.

Peer Support Group

The peer support group was created to ensure that a comfortable and safe environment is maintained within the VOC. There are six members of the peer support group, both males and females, dedicated to maintaining this environment within the club. We encourage everyone to approach any of our peer support members (whom are listed under the exec members on the membership page if you have felt uncomfortable, or have witnessed a situation of discomfort, harassment of any form or felt lack of safety on any of our trips that you wish to discuss and seek a resolution for. Resolutions can vary from simply having a misunderstanding cleared up to helping provide support for resolving any issues between two people in a safe environment.

To read more about the PSG, visit the wiki page here: https://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/VOC_peer_support_group

The Lord of Phelix

This years lord will be 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. Email [email protected] to get in touch with the lord.

Sign Up

For those who  haven't been to Brian Waddington Hut for New Years before, its important to know that this trip functions differently from many big VOC trips: The trip organization is decentralized and you must self-organize. This is because people have a variety of scheduling needs and a variety of skiing abilities. Despite this we still try to have some organization to help us coordinate with each other and to help others who may not have a group to go up with yet. So if you intend to join us at New Years whether you are a current VOC member, a VOC alumni, or just a friend of the VOC please follow these sign up steps:

  1. Register in the Hut Sign Up below on this wiki page
  2. If you can drive, register in the Drivers Sign Up below on this wiki page
  3. If you need a ride, register in the Carless People Sign Up below on this wiki page
  4. Go to the Trip Agenda (if you are a current VOC member) and sign up as interested or committed to the trip
  5. Contact any people you need to contact in order to self-organize your group!

Hut Sign Up

The purpose of the list below 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.

  • H = I plan to sleep in the hut
  • T = I plan to sleep in a tent
  • H or T = I have a tent but I might sleep in the hut if there is space
  • [ ... ] = I don't know 100% whether I will be up at Phelix on this night and will probably make this decision last minute

There is a capacity of 24 in the loft and space for another 10 to 15 if we get create and have people sleeping downstairs as well. Try and respect those who have signed up before you in terms of getting a space in a hut. Also, for those only staying one night or so, consider bringing up a tent and leaving some hut space for those who will be at the hut longer than you. As always in the VOC way however, there is always room for one more, so if you need a space in the hut, we can always find one. Any questions or concerns make sure to talk to The Lord of Phelix.

Driver Sign Up

Drivers: Please indicate here where you are leaving from, and when, and how many people you can transport. In the example below, Dorthy has a car with space for 4 passengers. Todo and Scarecrow are in her car already. She has put "NA" (not available) in passenger 5 and 6 because her car does not have space for a 5th or 6th passenger. She has left passenger 3 and 4 open so that a carless person can sign up for your car. If you have extra comments/details on your schedule, add them to the drivers comments section rather than the table. Make sure you have added yourself to the Hut Sign Up List with your email so that people can contact you.

Passengers: If you see an open spot for a passenger in the table below, and that person has a schedule and location that works for you, you can put your name down in that passenger spot. 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 confirmed, your should take your name off the "carless people" list. If things don't work out with you and the driver, make sure to remove yourself from their car so that someone else might take that spot.

Once more: Signing yourself up in a car does not mean that you are actually going to get picked up. Make sure to contact the driver!
