Participant Information

The game plan is to hike / ski up the rubble creek trail to Taylor campground, and set up camp on Saturday.

On Sunday we'll head up towards the Tusk and ski some moderate slopes to 30 degrees. There is no glacier travel on this trip.

This trip will move at a moderate/slower pace, but do to trail length. You must be fit. Previous winter camping experience advised. This should not be your first ski tour.Please make sure your gear WORKS.

Safety will be paramount followed by fun. We will be assessing snow conditions as best as possible, and making group decisions.If your fairly new to touring and think your up for, it.

Required equipment beacon, shovel, probe ,headlamp,warm clothes.

I'll supply a small first aid kit and a Sat phone.

If you sign up please coordinate camping gear and rides on the planning forum.I can take 3 people in my car.
