Details

We will start from the Blue Lake trailhead near Cameron Pass. This will be a cross/back country ski trip. There are moderate climbs so kicker skins will not be mandatory, but I recommend having them just in case there are icy conditions. The group will likely do some off-trail on the downhill return, so I don't recommend using "skinny skis" unless you are skilled in using this type of ski off trail. Participants don't need to have AT or Tele skis, but having a "slightly" wider ski will help, contact the leader if you have questions. Note if you do bring AT skis without "fish scales" you will need skins for the uphill to the lake. Prepare for winter conditions.
