Participant Information

We will get an early start on Saturday morning to beat the crowds and set up camp near tree line in Caspar Creek.  There are good ski opportunities on Duke Mt. and Vantage Peak.  This will be a fast paced trip.  Participants must be fit and able to ski in all terrain and conditions.  Along with the regular avalanche gear, an ice axe is recommended.  We will try to pool our resources for a tent and camping gear to keep the weight down.  Transportation costs will be around $30 each. Please bring a head lamp and spare batteries.
