June Season End/Beginning BBQ
Friday, June 22nd
Mission Point House, Davis Bay
Please join the TOC on Friday, June 22nd, at Mission Point House in Davis Bay starting at 5:30 pm for a potluck and BBQ. The kitchen is fully-equipped and all you need to bring is a dish or BBQ items to share. The club will provide some appies, and all the condiments and buns for burgers or sausages.
Mission Point House is at the south end of the Davis Bay walkway (directly across from Brookman Park on Chapman Creek at the bridge) and you will have to park in the Davis Bay public parking area unless you need to drive to the venue (the gated driveway will be open, but there is only room for a few cars and a turnaround).
If you'd like to bring friends, children, lawn games please do!

Wendy Thompson Hut in February
The TOC has once again booked the Wendy Thompson Hut and there are 2 separate trips:
3 nights starting Monday, February 5th
3 nights starting Sunday, Feb 25th.
The hut is located off the Duffey Lake Rd and requires a 4-5 hr ski over challenging terrain (see map and route description). All participants will have to carry snow safety gear (beacon, probe, shovel), have at least an intermediate level of skiing ability, and have previous similar backpack and backcountry skiing experience. The route is more challenging than the one to Mt. Steele and the location is more remote. There is no cell service but we will be bringing a 2-way satellite communication device.
There are only a few spaces left on the Feb 5th trip but the 25th trip is quite open. The cost is $75 per person.
Most participants will take the 6:20am ferry and meet in Squamish and then at the trail head on the Duffey Lake Rd. to ski in as a group. Participants usually form food and cooking equipment groups. Please take a look at the WTH webpage for more info about the hut.
If you are interested in this trip please contact the club and if you haven't skied with the club before please provide a brief description of your backcountry skiing experience.
