Dawn Patrol Club – North Vancouver

We are stoked announce the North Shore Dawn Patrol Club for the 2020/2021 season!

What is it? Early morning weekday backcountry skiing on the North Shore mountains with a professional ski guide. This is your ticket to getting out ski touring twice per week while still meeting your work commitments. Solo? No problem, come by yourself and join our crew. You’ll get an avalanche rescue refresher, build fitness, learn new techniques, and explore some rad zones right in our backyard.

The goal of the program is to get out ski touring in a fun, safe, and supportive environment.

The North Shore Dawn Patrol is lead by ACMG ski guide Tristen Rasmussen.

Who’s it for?

  • New and Experienced Backcountry skiers or split-boarders
  • Fitness for up to 2-3 hours of skiing

How does it work? (NEW):

  • Group size is limited to max 8 people per group. We will have capacity to run 2 groups. Each group will go to a separate zone.
  • Limited number of punch cards and passes are sold.
  • Each punch card or pass holder will receive a unique website code, which will be used to reserve your spot for each date.
  • Dates can be reserved anytime until 8pm the evening before.
  • Reservation required to attend. Group size limits must be respected.
  • Groups will be sorted based on ability and fitness.
  • You will receive an email with confirmed meeting time and location.
  • Ideally we will do Monday at Cypress Park and Wednesday at Seymour, however it will depend on the conditions.
  • There is the option to ski longer too if everyone in the group is able to!
