Participant Information

Starting on Saturday, March 16th, we will complete this traverse over three days ending on Monday, March 18th. We will meet as a group closer to the departure date to discuss transport logistics, gear, route, and weather. Depending on the level of experience of the group, we may or may not engage a guide. A decision will be made once the group has been established. A backcountry lift pass will need to be purchased ($72).
