This is a BITS friendly trip for those currently taking BITS or those who have taken BITS in the past. This if for those who want to get out and do a tour in the back country and burn off some of those excess calories taken in over the Holidays. The tour will take us all the way to Skoki Lodge or at least to Deception Pass to do a couple turns off Fossil (if conditions are good) or the pass. This is a great early season conditioning trip as well and a good time to see what the snow conditions are like in the back country. The total ski tour to Skoki is 22 km return so a reasonable fitness level is expected. This trip does require participants to have taken AST 1 and some recent beacon practice. If I haven't skied with you let me know your experience.
Required Items to Bring:
Beacon, shovel, probe, food, water, clothing layers for the weather.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Helmet, goggles, sunscreen, camera. Left over sweets to give away so you are no longer tempted to finish them off after the Holidays.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Google it!  
Carpool Departure Time:   06:45 AM
Carpool Location:   Recycle Bins off Hwy #1 next to the Wedding Chapel
Carpool Directions:   Google It!

We have a 2 hour drive so we want to leave at 6:45 sharp to give ourselves time to take in as much of the tour as we can. So get to the carpool location in plenty of time so we can leave on time.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
