Participant Information

We will take the Gondola to the backcountry area and establish a campsite. We will drop our packs and go tour in and around Stadium Gl and the Ledge group. Next morning we will get up early and ski some interesting lines. Then pack and exit through the gondola on Sunday. This trip is weather/viz and conditions dependant. Objectives are Gunsight notch, Exit Couloir, Stadium bowl, and maybe a summit or two. I would like participants to try to pack out their waste if possible.
