Description:

There seems to be a ton of interest for a trip the weekend of the 28th/29th, so Cassandra and I are going to take a group up metal dome. 

We are going to be as COVID safe as possible on this trip, and we'll cancel it if it doesnt abide by the provincial health guidelines at the time. Take a look at the VOC guidelines for more info on how we're handling this, and we'll discuss it at the pre trip as well. 

Beginner friendly ski/snowshoe. Winter camping. I believe it is about 8k each way, possibly a bit shorter. 

Skiing will depend on what the snowpack looks like by then. 

Could use one or two more experienced people as well. 

If you have any questions, email me at [email protected]

I'm happy to answer questions about the trip, gear, or the VOC in general. 

This is intended to be very beginner friendly, so even if you have no experience doing the above things, we would love to have you along! That being said, be prepared to be cold and a bit tired. 

Info For Beginners (copied from Declan):

  • This is winter camping, baby! You're going to need a winter sleeping bag, and lots of warm, non-cotton layers.
  • Check out this packing list for basic gear.
  • If you need information on how to layer clothes, what sort of food works for winter camping, or any other basics of this wonderful sport, read this super comprehensive article from REI. Seriously... read it! It's great.
  • Ignore all the hyperlinked things for you to spend all your money on in the REI article. We'll do gear rental's from the VOC! Check out the VOC gear list and see what you need to rent (we'll discuss this at the pretrip).
  • I will be doing a beginner Q&A/winter camping info session 30min before the pretrip. Please come to this if you have outsanding questions from the above information!
