By signing up for this trip you agree that your e-mail address will be shared with others who have signed up for this trip to arrange carpools and lodging.

From the top of Vail Pass we will ski to the top of Shrine Pass, a gradual 2.4 mi climb. After a short, somewhat flat section it is downhill all the way to Red Cliff.  This trip takes about 3 - 4 hours, which would include a quick stop for snacks/lunch.

If enough people only want to do the one-way trip, a car shuttle will be arranged with an earlier meeting time.

If you are doing the round-trip, we will stay at  In the evening we will dine at  There is no breakfast served at the Green Bridge Inn; however, food is available for purchase in the store downstairs.  We will leave for Vail around 8 am the next morning.  This day will be more difficult, with about 2500' of elevation gain in 8 miles.

You will need to book your own lodging at the Green Bridge Inn, link above, or leader will help pair you with another participant for room sharing.  Please bring in your pack whatever you need to stay overnight.

Any type of ski/board gear suitable for climbing and touring the distances and elevation gains listed above is acceptable.

Expect snowmobile traffic, especially on Sunday.




1. The Vail Pass Recreation area charges $6.00 per participant, or $3.00 with a senior parks pass.

2. The Green Bridge Inn charges are expected to be around $150/night per room.

3. You can view the prices at Mangoes using the link above.

4. If you want to share driving costs with someone, the formula is (30 cents per mile)/(number of people in the car (including the driver)).  For example, if there is a driver and one rider, the rider would pay 15 cents/mile.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
