Start: Saturday, Feb. 3rd
Pre-trip meeting: Wednesday, Jan. 31st, 6:00 pm
Pre-trip meeting location: Club Room


We will be going either to Seymour or Hollyburn. The idea is to spend a fun day in the snow! Depending on the weather we might switch to Sunday. 

I will limit the number of participants to 8 but if more experienced skiers and/or drivers sign up we can increase that number! 




We will meet 9:45 am at the Cypress Nordic area and head up to Hollyburn at 10:00am. It will take us roughly 2-3 hours to get up there. We'll have lunch together and make our way back at around 13:30. We should be at the cars by 3:30-4. 
For Skiers: 
- This is a beginner friendly trip, meaning, we will go at the speed of the slowest person and will try to avoid difficult skiing. 
   if you are a beginner and have never skied in the back country before. note that the club has only Telemark skis for rental so it might get challenging for you. As much as we will try our best to help you, Martin and I are not experienced instructors and are both AT-skiers. 
   If you are an intermediate/advanced resort skier (comfortable on all blues and some black runs in the resort), don't be afraid to try out Tele skiing. The terrain is not difficult and you will most probably manage getting down. 
  If you have skied on Telemarks at least once before and would like to practice this is the trip for you! 
For Snowshoers: 
You are most welcome. Skinning up and snowshoeing usually take the same but on the way down skiers will probably be a little faster. So we might divide into two groups for the return trip. 
Getting there:
We'll find out at the pre-trip meeting how many car spots are available. But we also have the option of taking the shuttle. We'll discuss all of this at the pre-trip meeting.
