 So I'm sick and won't be able to lead this trip but...

Many thanks to Ross for taking over! You're the best!!


Still can't ski worth a darn but want a fun way to get out in the snow? No problem! Let's go snowshoeing/sledding*! 

This is a very beginner friendly day trip: no experience necessary and everyone is welcome to come. 

We would head up to Helm Creek via te Cheakamus lake trail.

The location is TBD, but some options include, Red Heather (will likely be busy though) Taylor Meadows/Helm Creek (depending which direction we come from), Hollyburn and Brew. Joffre Lakes was another thought, but I personally don't know much about the landscape for sledding (though I hear it's beautiful!). If you have any thoughts on where to go, pease post them on the message board.

Likewise if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me :)

Let's go have some fun!


*I guess in Canada 'sledding' usually means 'snowmobile.' I'm talking about the flimsy plastic thing you slide around on, not the big fancy heavy machine.
