A while back I was interested in establishing a venue to connect people with a passion for touring in the South Coast. The result was the Facebook Group ‘South Coast Touring’. This has turned out to be a very successful forum for sharing information and connecting with other tourers.
The intent of the group is as follows:
“A place to share pictures, videos, conditions and more with backcountry enthusiasts in Southwest British Columbia. The group is intended to be a respectful and encouraging group that promotes good decision making, good trips and good community. This group is not intended for trolling, gear talk, buy/sell or discussion about non South Coast backcountry destinations.”
I’ve also created an Instagram account “@SouthCoastTouring” as a sister feed to the Facebook Group. This group is intended as a venue for sharing touring images that fuel a passion for South Coast snow.
