Preference on the waiting list may be given to members who have already participated in a "BRISK walk" or have otherwise demonstrated that they are fast hikers

Note: If you come on a winter hike, you should always have a pair of icers in your pack. You won't have to use them very often, but when it is icy on the trail, you'll need them. The icer is held to your boot with a set of Velcro straps, and keeps you from slipping and sliding. You can purchase good quality icers at MEC.

Required Items to Bring:
  • Good footwear
  • Water 1/2 -1 L and snacks
  • icers
  • Flashlight or headlight
Recommended Items to Bring:
