Details

The Cameron Pass snowpack has improved substantially over the past few weeks. The plan is to access the bowl NE of the Nokhu Crags for powder ski runs mostly below treeline. Bring AT or tele gear with climbing skins. You should be prepared to ski 30-35 degree slopes in trees with variable backcountry snow conditions and terrain hazards. E-mail inquiries preferred. - GUIDELINES FOR ADVANCED BACKCOUNTRY SKI TOURS - FITNESS LEVEL: You can skin up at 800 feet per hour on an established track for 3 hours with occasional breaks. SKIING ABILITY: You can ski ‘Black' runs at ski areas with reasonable confidence. You can make linked turns in powder, but difficult snow types - heavy wet snow, crusts, poor visibility, or steep slopes may cause problems, though you can cope with them. AVALANCHE TRAINING: Completion of a level 1 avalanche course or equivalent training and avalanche gear (beacon, shovel, probe) are required. Contact: John Raich, jraich@lamar.colostate.edu.
