After talking a bit about the destination and how to get there we can sort out carpooling at the pre-trip meeting. On the trip its self, we head to Zoa Peak in the Coquihalla range and find some slopes to lay fresh tracks on and generally enjoy the terrain there. The tour in takes something like 45 to 90 mins and the ski out is all down slope to the parking lot except a few patches were the penguin shuffle is called for.

The ski terrain isn't especially difficult, but it would be great if people had the skiing ability to ski blue runs at resorts before signing up for this trip.


We're capping the number of participants on this trip at 12 in an effort to keep the group manageable for us, but if we can find another experienced person to help look after people, we could increase the max size to 15.


Please e-mail me or call me if you're interested in joining us on this trip and you have any questions or concerns I might be able to help out with.
