Howe Sound Crest Trail: On May 26, 2009, the federal government launched the call for applications for the Government of Canada’s $25 million investment in recreational trails as part of the Government’s 2009 Economic Action Plan. The funds will be used to create, upgrade and sustain non-motorized, snowmobile and all-terrain vehicle trails throughout the country. I am in the preliminary stages of applying for a grant of this money to rehabilitate the Brandywine Meadows Trail. I am currently looking for passionate individuals to assist me with the application and, if successful, with the implementation of our rehabilitation plan. If you have any experience in the following areas, and would like to work on a summer project with me, please send me an email at email@example.com or give me a call at 604-351-7149. I am looking for assistance in the following areas:

Kokanee Cabin: If you are interested in entering the advance lottery please email Channin Liedtke with two different ski weeks listed with preferences (first or second choice) listed beside the weeks. Although the Alpine Club of Canada only gets to allocate one week for Club use your preferred week may conflict with a week selected by other organizations that also get advance booking privileges which makes listing alternative weeks important.
Fairy Meadows Hut Reservations for 2010: If you are interested in a ski week please be sure to e-mail Channin Liedtke your preferred weeks. Please list at least a second choice week for Fairy Meadow Hut because if any weeks are selected by more than one section a lottery will be held to allocate that week's booking and the unsuccessful participant in the lottery will be allocated their second choice week.

Canadian Alpine Journals/Accidents in N.A. Mountaineering: As recently published in the Club’s NewsNet the National Office in Canmore has many back issues of Canadian Alpine Journals (CAJ) and Accidents in North American Mountaineering (ANAM) to give away for free. The Canmore office is unable to mail copies to individual members. However the Vancouver Section would be happy to arrange to have a bulk order shipped to Vancouver and cover the cost of this for our Section’s members. Members can then arrange to pick up their copies at our monthly member’s meetings or make other arrangements.
CAJ Issues that are available include: 1912 (special scientific edition), 1967, '68, '72, '77, '78, '79, '81, '82, '83, '84, '85, '86, '87, '92, '93, '94, '95, '97, '98, '99, '01 and '02. (A summary of the content of years 1995 to 2008 is available at www.alpineclubofcanada.ca under the heading Mountain Culture/CAJ.)
ANAM's available include 1978, '79, '81, '83, '85, '86, '92, '95, '03 and ‘05.
“I have all of these ACC publications in my personal collection. The 1967 and 1968 CAJ’s are particularly worth having for the articles on the Coast Mountains and the Yukon Alpine Centennial Expedition which took place as a part of Canada’s centennial in 1967.” Paul Geddes
If you would like to place your order please be specific and selective about what you want. All requests are accepted on a first come basis. Send your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just released: Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis, Third Edition by John Baldwin: Grab your skis and explore the Coast Mountains. This is your guide to deep powder, endless glacier runs, alpine descents, cozy huts, couloirs and high level traverses. Includes everything from backcontry skiing, scenic tours, challenging ski ascents and long descents to difficult traverses across large icefields.
Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis covers an area that stretches from the edges of the North Cascades in Washington State to the grand icefields of northern BC and the Alaska panhandle. Ski trips varying in length from one day to several weeks are described. Emphasis is placed on day and weekend trips to alpine areas near Vancouver, including popular trips near Whistler, Pemberton, Mt Baker and the Coquihalla highway. Remote ski trips to the large icefields and rugged summits that stretch north to Alaska are also described, as are shorter trips in the areas around Smithers, Stewart and Terrace in northern BC.
Books will be available to Vancouver section members at the February 24 social.
