Participant Information

If you need to stop at the border to clear-up visas and such , please drive on your own 

across and meet us on the other side at the grocery store right after the border.


Remember that No fresh fruits or veggie are allowed across!


Expect POW conditions at the top with some bootpacking on our way down through the forest.

I hope the views would be amazing as so far the forecast calls for SUN :)!



Please be considerate and do NOT sign up unless you are 100% committed for the trip and you are at least an intermediate skier in the Backcountry. If in doubt about your capabilities send me a message and we can talk about it:) 

Will be moving at moderate-fast pace, so if you are a slow skier this trip might not be for you.
