e-mail preferred,


If you are just learning to ride in the backcountry, or if you want an easy day, this trip is for you. AT, telemark skis or splitboards are welcome.  It is low angle so avalanche gear is not necessary. You will need full climbing skins, although you might be able to get by with kicker skins. Expect variable conditions from top to bottom.  Subsquent runs may be adjusted based on the best snow.

 Each "run" is about 600' elevation gain and .6 mile.  Leave your lunch at the house, take a run or two, eat lunch inside the house, then optionally take another run.  

By signing up for this trip you agree that your e-mail address may be shared with others on the trip for the purpose of carpooling.

If you have any known medical conditions that may manifest themselves during this activity, please notify the leader via e-mail prior to the trip.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
