This is a non-guided, non-instructional trip.
It is designed for people who have some backcountry experience.
The trip organizer(s) are not expecting to be guiding/instructing.
Anyone who attends should be ready to be a contributor to the group.
Everyone will need avalanche gear- beacon, shovel and probe.
You don't have to be an expert, but you should have some experience.. It is not a "learn how to travel in the backcountry" trip.
It looks like we're getting more snow all week, and next week should be awesome. If you are in town, and want to get out in the backcountry on Monday, let's do it!
I'm not sure where to go yet, but I'll be looking at places like Jake's Peak, or maybe the Crescent Moon Couloir near Carson Pass. I'd prefer to ride on slopes in the 35º-40º range.
