***NEW***

In signing up for this hike you will be automatically placed on a waitlist. IF you have NEVER hiked with me before, please answer all the RSVP questions so we can determine together whether this is an appropriate hike for you to join. The answers and discussion after will be the deciding factors of gaining a spot on the go list. My goal is to get as many people out to the mountains as possible, but also be fair to those who are signing up well equipped, capable, and having certain expectations for the hike.

*MUST HAVE GEAR*

-Brain Bucket (Helmet)

-No JEANS, or COTTON clothing

-Hiking boots (wear different shoes and socks to the trail)

-A proper backpack

-****Clothing layers for changing conditions (expect the unexpected)****

-****Carry a toque, *multiple* pairs of gloves/mitts, neck tube/scarf****

-Spare socks

-Waterproof jacket/rain pants

-Personal first aid kit

-Headlamp AND spare batteries for it

-Emergency blanket (bivvy sack) and fire starting materials

-High energy snack food for quick energy top up and a big lunch

-Minimum 2 liters of water plus a/Gatorade/Coconut/Water/Electrolyte Replacement

*SUGGESTED GEAR*

-Microspikes

-UV *eye protection* AND sunscreen

-Hiking poles

-Hand/Toe warmers

-Whistle/Signaling mirror

-Ski Goggles

It is very difficult for me to tell people NO, but without the above gear it is not safe for a person to join putting themselves, and the whole group at risk. I will have no choice other than to turn you away if you do not show up properly prepared. Please do not put me in a position of having to do that :( .

NOTE: ALL MY EVENTS ARE SUBJECT TO LOCATION CHANGE DUE TO POOR WEATHER CONDITIONS.

It will be rare to see any of my events canceled outright.

Noseeum Peak

I have been advised to check out Noseeum Peak and have heard from many how spectacular it is. Expect a 13ish Km, 1200 meter gain, and up to 10 hour hike. Winter is making an appearance at elevation this week but I will leave the Microspikes on recommend list for now. If you have a pair, bring them, if you don't have, go look to buy a pair. An essential tool for your backpack starting now. It will also be cold... be prepped for winter type conditions, extra layers, warm coats, multiple gloves...

Early start, as per norm. Like it or.... sleep in and miss out on a spectacularly adventurous way to spend valuable remaining life seconds ;).


Times are APPROX, if you need to be back in the city at a particular time, its best to sit this one out.

Car pool $15.

Joining this hike is like joining a team, and we are all necessary as part of that team. Looking out for each other, helping someone get through spots they may be struggling with, slowing down to spend time with people that may travel a little slower, enjoying the beauty of life outdoors, the mountains, sharing fantastic experiences with amazing people, and taking lots of or posing for awesome pictures is what my hikes are all about. If getting to the summit and back as fast as you can is more important, that is ok; this hike just may not be a good fit for you.

Cheers
