Participant Information

This will be two solid days of back country touring.  Faster break out groups can bag peaks along the way.  Meet up in the afternoon for communal camping.  Will need a volunteer to dig the latrine (10 foot long, three feet deep). This should not be your first back country ski trip.  AST-1 and avi-gear is mandatory minimum.  Route finding skills are necessary.  Ski crampons may come in handy.  Preference given to those who can help with logistics or have strong first aid skills.  Crevasse concerns to be discussed.  You will need to purchase a back country pass or use your unlimited spring Edge Card.  This trip is weather dependent and may be postponed for better conditions.    Bring candles and musical instruments.
