Participant Information

This is something that's been on my bucket list for a long time and it is the reason I started ski touring. I did attempt it last year but had to turn around just past Opal cone because of poor visibility on the glacier. I'm open to doing it either direction. If the plan is northbound, then do a car shuffle friday after work, camp near elfin lakes; saturday camp near sharkfin, and ski out sunday.


Trip will be postponed if there is unfavorable snow condition, or low visibility.


ALL participants MUST have the following skills, experience and equipment:

previous winter camping experience

glacier travel and crevasse rescue skills

AST 1 minimum



Mandatory individual gear:

Touring set up (well broken in, no rentals)

Avy set (bring spare batteries)




ice axe


first aid kit (blister kit)

belay/rappel device

A crevesse rescue kit you are familiar with (doesn't matter if it's prusiks/carabiner, or microtrxion/tibloc/pulley, or a combination of them , just know how to use it)

sleeping pad

sleeping bag

sun & wind protection: sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses and/or ski goggles

clothing for several days in the elements, from hot weather to multiple hours of sub-zero weather

a pack big enough to carry all of the above (and a bit more)
