Details

This will be an easy day of moderate backcountry skiing at Mayflower Gulch in Summit County. This trip is open to AT and tele skiers and splitboarders and is intended for those looking to get in some early season turns and/or to break in new gear. This is not a trip for Nordic skiers, snowshoers or dogs.

Weather and snow conditions will dictate the exact route but we'll probably skin uphill about 2 miles and 1,400 feet, more if conditions are good. The group will stay together and move at a moderate pace. Expect to be out 3-5 hours. Some skiing may be above treeline and could be very cold in the wind. The leader will supply a detailed route map in advance of the outing.

You must have AT skis, tele skis or a splitboard with properly fit climbing skins. Beacon, shovel, probe and backpack are mandatory. Warm clothes and wind protection are also required. Goggles and helmet are recommended but not required. Please make sure your gear is ready to go prior to the outing.

We will conduct a standard beacon check at the trailhead. Please test your beacon prior to the outing. You will not be allowed to join if your beacon does not work properly. We will review terrain assessment, snowpack evaluation and basic avalanche rescue procedures throughout the day.

You must have AIARE Level 1 or the equivalent to attend this outing. You must know how to use your beacon, shovel and probe. You must be comfortable skiing ungroomed terrain up to 30 degrees. This is a Blue Downhill Ski Tour Classification (see Ski Tour Classifications).
