Stadium Glacier. Sky Pilot Valley Trail. 2016

Hello Crew!!

Are you excited?! I am! I was up at Squamish’s Sky Pilot this past weekend and fall has definitely set in so please layer up! A few sessions are outside on both days. For your comfort and safety, be prepared by wearing warm clothing and the appropriate footwear. I’d recommend the following:

Daypack
Hard shell (Rain jacket)
Mid-layer
Running or hiking shoes
Gaiters
Binoculars
Sunglasses
Hat/Toque

Also important! My cell number! Text or call me if you any concerns, issues, or questions prior to or during the retreat.

On to business!

Retreat Fees
Retreat fees are due Tuesday, October 11th.

Accommodations
We’re staying at the Executive Suites Hotel in Squamish. A few mentioned arriving Friday. If you’d like to arrange a group get together before the retreat let me know!

Saturday, October 15th
We begin promptly at 12 p.m. in the Sea to Sky Gondola Summit Lodge. For details, see Retreat Agenda.

Travel (Abbotsford to Sea to Sky: ~ 90 minutes)
I recommend leaving Abbotsford between 9 – 9:30 a.m. If traffic is light, you should arrive to the Gondola around 11 a.m. It will be on your right hand side as you approach. 

Sea to Sky Gondola Parking
Pull in and the parking attendants will guide you to where you should park. Should there be an overflow issue, you can park at Stawamus Chief, Darrell’s Bay, or Shannon Falls (not far down the road, headed towards Vancouver) and walk up to the Gondola.

Retreat Location: Sea to Sky Gondola Summit Lodge
The Sea to Sky Summit Lodge is located on your right as you exit the gondola ride. Walk in and head towards the back and then to your right, past the bar and through massive barn doors. Map here.

Gondola Tickets
To access your gondola tickets, head to Guest Services. Guest Services/Gift Shop is the small building directly on the left of the gondola. They’ll have a list of all registered Preceptors. You can retrieve your free ticket inside. If you’re bringing family, you’ll be able to purchase additional tickets at a 30% discount.

Retreat Registration
The registration desk will be set up in the Summit Lodge. We have a few items to hand out for your journey.

Food & Beverages
Saturday & Sunday: Snacks and lunch are provided. Additional food/beverages may be purchased the lodge.

Saturday: Sea to Sky Evening Social
The Social will be held at the Executive Suites Hotel Clubhouse from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The Clubhouse is located to the right of the hotel entrance. 

Sunday, October 16th
Park at Sea to Sky, grab your tickets at Guest Services, and we’ll see you at the Lodge at 10 a.m. sharp!
