Dude, sweet.


Skiers. Hopefully some decent mix of somewhat experienced and less experienced. Not too many.


Backcountry skiing in nipple deep gnar.


December 6th - 7th, 2008

Pre-Trip Meeting

Date: Wednesday, December 3rd
Time: 6:00pm
Location: VOC Clubroom


Diamond Head area
Needle Peak area

Location changed to Diamond Head!

Needle Peak area (Coquihalla). Zoa is a possible backup location if the group ends up being weighted towards the less experienced.

Click on the image at right for a topographic map of the area. The parking, approach and some ski runs are shown. The run off the West ridge of Needle has a varying slope angle depending on how far left/right you go. The slope that runs east from Flatiron is around 20 degrees. There is potentially some more advanced terrain on the southwest side of Flatiron (30+ degrees), but would need good snow conditions...


With great aplomb.


or see Gear_lists

Note that you can borrow equipment from the club for free. Gear_rental does require a cash deposit, however.

The usual backcountry ski gear will be required, and and avalanche transceiver and shovel will be absolutely mandatory.
