Obviously we need drivers to make this event happen, but please indicate that you're willing to drive ONLY if you and your vehicle are appropriate for some more difficult winter conditions than regular highway driving.

Required Items to Bring:
- Snow Shoes - Poles (with snow baskets) - Hiking boots + gaiters, or winter boots - Rentals are available, if required, at U of C Outdoor Centre. - easy to eat lunch & snack items, water or warm beverages - layered clothing!
