dPrerequisites / Courses Required: XXX

Required items to bring:

Given reports of the high snow pack and very high levels of precipitation expected next week, I'm going to pull pin on this trip and try to reschedule later in the year!

Each member is responsible for own diet. pers hygiene, and bear spray. We''ll flesh out more in days ahead regards shared tents, water filters, group tarp, fire starter, etc.

We are very likely to encounter snow, possibly very deep snow, on this trip that will require constant reassessment of safe forward progress. I've reduced the group size and listed this as a difficult trip. Normally, Brazeau would be a longish beginners trip. Given snow melt conditions this year this is not a trip for beginner hikers.

As per club guidelines, participants are responsible for arranging their own accommodations and transportation.

Please refer to the GMMC Policies regarding Animals, Carpooling, Accommodation, and Cancellation.
