Participant Information

This is a lift assisted trip to the Sky Pilot area.  The terrain is complex and there are terrain traps.  There may also be travel on the Stadium glacier, so rescue skills are required.  A person died on this glacier in 2014.  There is also the option of skiing down under the gondola, depending on the snow pack.  I have made the summit of both Sky and Copilot in the summer.  This is my first time to the area in winter.  If the weather cooperates this will be a great day.
