Last spring I linked the Wedge-Currie, Spearhead, McBride and Neve ski traverses to traverse all of Garibaldi Park - from Mt. Currie to Red Heather - solo in a 104 km, 8700 m, 30.3 h 'day'. But I didn't always know how to ski - in fact, when I joined the VOC a dozen years ago I didn't even know you are supposed to turn from side to side when going downhill!

Join me as I make up for a lack of photos (I was busy skiing!) by talking about motivation, training, equipment, route selection and hazard management. Don't worry - there will still be some visuals from training and reconnaissance trips, and geeking-out on GPS track data.

Note date change to Wednesday, March 7th, Buchanan A203, 7:00pm.
