Participant Information

An easy day out along "Flat Dog". This is mostly a tour, as there isn't much skiing along the ridge to Windy Gap. It's a good beginner trip (beginner as in new to ski touring, not beginner as in new to skiing), but you still need to be comfortable skiing through a variety of conditions, including some trees and a along narrow trails. 

I am recovering from several injuries so I'll be moving slower. I'll give priority to those who were on the requested list for the Introduction to Backcountry Ski course back in January.

You must bring a shovel, beacon and probe. And you must have at least AST-1.
