Participant Information

Three days of skiing to ring in the new year, or at least to send out the old one. The plan is to ski in to the hut at Snowspider over Vantage Col, and set up camp. Day 2 we'll get some turns on Snowspider, and ski back to camp. Day 3 we'll ski out, with a posible ascent of Vantage on the way back to the cars.

Shovel, beacon, probe, AST-1 and strong shovelling skills required :) 

The hut isn't in Baldwin's book, but you can take a look on bivouac: 

I'm happy to accomodate slower skiers and splitboarders, but participants must have winter camping experience and the gear to do it in case the hut is full.
