Skills Sharing Nights Series-February

Red heather social tour

Join Les Chevres for a friendly twilight skin up Red Heather Hut. The perfect occasion to meet touring partners, get some fresh air and have fun on snow under the stars.

Make sure to bring your headlamp and be comfortable skiing or riding in the dark.

This event is for those who already have experience in ski touring. Participants are asked to comfortably know how to transition and be comfortable going down at night, with a headlamp. There will be no initiation.

 

Exertion Level:

  • Light-medium (~1+ hours of hiking with a backpack)
  • The ability to get to the Red Heather Trailhead (chains are required). We will try to arrange carpooling if this is not an option.

** If the weather or snow conditions are not safe, the session will be postponed.

 

Disclaimer: This is not a coached or guided tour. This event is facilitated by experienced and passionate backcountry recreationnalists.
