This trip was part of the Bridge River Valley BC day weekend. It was organized to promote the rejuvenation of the old ski hut that was used during the heydays of the mining. It was led by Glen (Scott) MacDonald who was part of the Bralorne Group trying to promote skiing there again. After following the lead vehicle & parking by the Teahouse, we headed ap at about 13:00 hours.
