Details

We will skin and ski around Hoosier Pass and take advantage of all this recent snow. The wind direction and weather will dictate the exact location we ski. Plan for 2,500-3,000' elevation gain. If the avalanche forecast is Considerable or higher we will stay to lower angle terrain. If time dictates we will do some beacon practice and a snow pit study. The leader is AIARE Professional Level 1 certified.



Backcountry AT/tele skis with skins, or splitboard required. Beacon, probe, shovel and the knowledge to use them are required. You must have AIARE Level 1 training or similar. Bring proper winter clothes, ten essentials and food/water for a full day.



Contact the leader with your experience to register.
