For those who recently completed the Pikes Peak Group Intro to Backcountry Ski Course, this is a great progression to continue to build your skills.  This is a moderate out and back ski into South Fork Lake Creek Road near La Plata Peak.  We will stay to the main road following the creek as far as everyone can go, have lunch, then return by the same route.  We may explore some of the side roads along the way and find a play hill near our end point.  NNN-BC cross-country gear will be fine, but cable binding backcountry gear will be better.  Avalanche gear and training are required.  Nat Geo Map 127.  260mi.  10/1,600.  Register with leader.  Eric Hunter or (719) 266-9647.
