From Bear Lake parking lot, in Rocky Mountain National Park, we will ski to Bierstadt Lake, do a loop or two around it, and return.  Depending on weather, snow conditions and group, we will select another tour in Bear Lake area for a finale. Leader has a few ideas in mind.  Total tour not to exceed 8 miles.  

please bring cross-country touring skis, wax or waxless.  If you don't have waxless skis with the fishscale pattern, climbing skins will be helpful but not required.  Also bring poles, 10 essentials, warm clothing, face protection.  


While our route will not expose us to any obvious avalanche hazard, and avy gear (probe, beacon, shovel) is not required, each person will need to use his or her own judgement.  Upon request, I can send map of proposed route.  

Please notify leader of any medical conditions that might impact the trip.
