    Was just there. You need an axe, matches, TP and tea towel. Very few plates. Lots of bowls. The trip down the cut line is on a narrow trail. Its hard to snowplow to stop you for going too fast on steep sections. Falls may happen expected on cross county skies on the narrow trail. Beautiful area. Have fun.

    Here is the final information for the trip. We will be meeting at 8:00am and leaving the parking lot at 8:15am. If your late don't bother going to the parking lot, just meet us at the trail head. We will park vehicles at the Elk Pass Parking lot and will be skiing up the Elk Pass route, into BC to the hut.

    For those interested we will be going to the hot springs after the trip. Bring bathing suit and towel.

    Marissa and Damon need to make a $5.00 payment or a $[masked] membership payment to be on the trip. This can be done on the CORA web page.

    I've made a mistake and there are only 10 reservable spaces in the hut. The people who have contacted me with reservations are
    Nicole N., Meghan, Kayley, Marissa, Rob G., Katalin, Brenda, Darcy, Damon, and myself.

    I'm sorry, but those of you who have not made reservations will not be permitted on this event. For future reference please make your reservation as soon as you are on the event.
