Participant Information

We'll go up the trail and down Frosty Creek. Some of the skiing is somewhat challenging here; Baldwin's book says the start of Frosty Creek is 35 degrees. The distance is a bit long and strenuous. See pages 211-212 of Baldwin.

Map. 1183m elevation gain and 18km roundtrip.

Gear required: Avalanche gear (Transceiver, Probe, Shovel), AT, tele, or splitboard Equipment, Headlamp suitable for skiing.

Welcome additional gear: GPS, PLB, camera, first aid kit.

Recommended carpooling cost:  approx. $20 per passenger; please arrange with driver; bring funds.

I plan to camp in Manning Park and ski Mount Kelly the next day. Please join that trip and camp with me if you want. There is a $13 fee for winter camping per group. On Saturday evening, I also plan to use the pool, hot tub, and sauna in the Manning Park lodge for $5. If people prefer sharing a room over camping, I'd be willing to stay at a cabin in Sunshine Valley or a hotel in Hope or somewhere else not too far.
