I just added information on our usage of SPOT trackers in the FAQ section. All athletes who participate next year should read it carefully.
If you bring your own SPOT or Garmin inReach please let me know by the end of this week (i.e by December 15th).
A quick reminder to all those travelling to Canada for the MYAU who are not Canadians: In case you do not have a valid eTA you will need to apply for one. This is the link: https://cic-eta-gov.online/index.html. It can all be done online and is pretty straight forward.
Many MYAU athletes use multi-fuel stoves. We recommend and rent out the Primus OmniLite Ti. Multi-fuel stoves are efficient and powerful. They get snow/ice melted quickly if need be. These stoves also are reliable when handled correctly and maintained well. However, any stove can have a problem at some point. In that case it is important that you know how to handle the situation. The following is a great video from Primus that shows you the basic trouble shooting procedures for Primus multi-fuel stoves. If you use a different product and don't know how to clean or repair it, please check out the internet for similar instructions.
Fall is here and temperatures are getting colder. This usually means I get asked more and more questions about the upcoming MYAU, e.g. re. timings, flight bookings, accommodation, etc. Therefore, I want to just mention our FAQ section on the website. Anyone signed up for the race, please have a look at it. Also, if there are questions that you feel should be added, please do let me know.
