Five Winds Winter Checklist

06 Jan 2018 12:14 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

It's time to get your day pack, and ski/snowshoe equipment organized for the Winter Season.

REMEMBER:  We are out all day.  There areno chalets or warming huts, just the great outdoors, so you need to be prepared in carrying extra clothing and essentials in your backpack.  We are not the "lycra and fanny pack" crowd.
  • Health Form - filled out and stored within easy access in your pack that group members can retrieve in case of emergency
  • Winter Clothing - What to wear and why these things are important e.g. gaitors

  • Daypack Essentials (Full list)
    • Safety equipment
    • Extra clothing
    • Lunch, water bottle, thermos (nice to have a warm drink out on the trails)
    • Map, compass, and gps (optional)
    • Ski wax or glide wax for waxless skis, ski scraper
  • Extra clothing, food and drink can be left on the bus for your return home
  • Bus Fare, if still owing (cash, exact change preferable)
