We will skin up Baldy road up above treeline to the Carbonite Mine we will ski several lines in the bowl before returning back to the trailhead. We will ski about 4000 feet of lines in this zone depending on the fitness of the group. Bring snacks and lunch to eat while skiing in this area.  We will return to the trailhead in the early to mid afternoon.



The backcountry tour will involve a round trip of up to 6 miles with an elevation gain of up to 4,000', with a portion on an established track. Be prepared to break trail for part of the route. Ascent will be moderately paced with periodic stops for snowpack and terrain assessments. You should be able to ski untracked snow in variable conditions, both above and below treeline, in trees of varying density. Terrain steepness will be 30 degrees or less. You should be prepared for an outing of about 5 hours, trailhead to trailhead.
