Participant Information

Drive up to the snow (1000 m?) and skin to the ridge (1700 m), about 3 hrs skinning.  Ski the east slopes (few trees).  If all goes well we would be yoyo-ing for up to 4 hrs until about 3 pm.  Allow about 1 hour to ski back down and be at the vehicle(s) just as it gets dark.  A bit more skiing than last weekend, and we would (hopefully) save time not putting on chains.

Skiing will be at a moderate pace.  Weather forecast:  snowing and freezing level at 1000 m.  I am hoping for up to 30 cm of fresh snow at treeline.

I can only take myself and one passenger in my small truck.  Maximum participants is 2 unless one of you can bring a 4wd high clearance vehicle.

For more information see the Baldwin guide p. 175.  You can also check the following websites for updated weather conditions:



Participants are expected to do their own research into the trip.

Minimum requirements:  avi gear (and know how to use it), headlamp, 10 essentials, passport

I will have GPS, map, compass, spot beacon, first aid kit
