Good evening everyone!
Here is the recommended packing list for Squamish. I remember posting it at some point but my memory has been playing tricks on me lately (I forgot I had a coffee on Sunday morning, can you believe it?)
I attended a teacher meeting two weeks ago in North Vancouver and here’s what came up a few times during that session.
1) Clothes will get filthy. Don’t send you child with a fancy snow suit as it will for sure come back dirty.
2) It will be smoky in the big house so fancy clothes are a no-no. I love the smell of a campfire but I’m not sure all of you will be ok with it.
2) All students must bring a toque and two pairs of gloves/mittens. Be prepared for terrible conditions (lots of rain!). Extra socks and warm + waterproof boots are also a must.
3) It will get cold at night. At this time of the year (and even in the summer) I always use my -12 C sleeping bag. I get cold easily but I’m always prepared and I never have issues.
