This popular local ski tour in our back yard is for anyone comfortable skinning and skiing in untracked snow. Our route takes us from West Buttermilk parking lot to the top of the ski area and a quick stop in the warming hut for a snack. We'll then continue along the ridge out to the "Sugarbowls", where gentle open slopes may provide some ski turns and then we will tour back along the government trail to the parking area to complete our loop. Avalanche gear will not be required on this trip, however you must have backcountry, telemark or AT skis only (no split-boards). Climbing skins along with all of the appropriate gear and clothing for a day tour are required. Please plan on a full day; our start time will be 8:30am at the West Buttermilk parking area. As always we will try to incorporate some education for those interested including navigation, the what to do "if" in an emergency, along with some fun and mellow backcountry skiing.
