This is a winter back-country event gear required:

Avi beacon, probe, shovel (absolutely mandatory )!!

Also note that beacon must be at least 3 attenna variety...

ski, boots, poles, skins ( this is a ski touring event not snow shoeing )

toque, warm gloves, googles

Please note that this list is not all-inclusive but at starting point

An average level of fitness is good, we will move at a moderate/slow pace. As this is now winter travel, conditions might dictate a slower pace and or route finding. Bushwhacking can/may happen.
