EVEN in winter snows, a woman climbing Grouse Mountain in 1909 did not wear trousers, she wore bloomers that were normally concealed beneath her skirt. Homemade bindings secured her feet to skis or snowshoes. This photo comes from the B.C. Mountaineering Club's records recently acquired by the North Vancouver Museum and Archives.
