Description:

Want to get out of town this weekend for a day trip? Come ski Zoa with me! 

 

Zoa Peak is a popular ski spot that has loads of mellow terrain well suited for entry-level ski touring. Requirements for this trip are that you have previously had AT skis on your feet for at least a couple days and have completed AST-1 or equivalent.

 

Zoa Peak is located in the Coquihalla, a couple hours of driving from Vancouver, so prepare for an early morning. Plan is to meet at the parking area at 8am and skin up at a friendly pace. From there, we’ll see how the vibe is - if this ends up being a bigger group, we can split off into smaller groups based on skill level/goals for the day. We’ll ski for as long as our hearts desire and head back before dark. 

 

Zoa doesn’t have a warming hut and it’s supposed to get very cold this weekend with wind chill, so pack for warmth. If it looks too cold to ski, or too crazy to drive the Coq, I will re-locate this trip to the local mountains. We’ll talk more about all this (and everything else) at the pre-trip.
