Participant Information

A classic ski trip during Easter long weekend! We will start at the Diamondhead, and join the throngs of people to the Black Tusk. To allow for whiteouts/bad weather, to stretch the trip out (shorter days) or maybe an ascent of Garabaldi, I am planning for an extra day. Participants are expected to be self sufficient in skiing, glacier travel and multi-day travel. This is a relatively easy traverse, and I am a slow skier, but a lousy instructor so this isn't a beginner friendly trip. Priority will be given to applicants who have a vehicle and camping supplies.

Expected to bring:

Ski equipment (avi stuff, skiing stuff)

Glacier travel (harness, two prussics, two lockers, really good sunglasses)

Camping supplies (a shared tent, sleeping bag, pad)

Food for three days.

More details will come as the day gets closer.
