Are you interested in getting away from the lift lines, crowds, and commercialism indicative of downhill areas? I'm looking to hook up with other people who want to explore the backcountry. ANYONE OUT THERE? Let's hookup and schedule a meetup for some great backcountry skiing in Tahoe or Yosemite this winter!

Please let me know if you're interested!

Hi,

I am looking to do just that. Recently I relocated to the area so I am in the process of getting a list together of possible trips I would like to do and places to explore. Lets talk further.

Very interested in XC -- also snow shoeing. Should we try to meet up at one of the meetings? Barbara

I have heard good things about skiing Badger Point on Yosemite National Park. http://www.weekendshe...­ Other than that I am at the mercy of the internet when it comes to xcountry ski areas. For Back country skiing I am interested, but would be new to it. So long as someone does not mind showing me the ropes I am up for it. My schedule is mixed so if someone wants to throw out a time and place I will try to make it. I live in Walnut Creek.

Aaron, Barbara & Steve,

Great to hear all your input on this! Looks like we DO have some interest in this group for some Xcountry/backcountry skiing! I'm in the process of putting together some ideas....
I'm leaning towards going up in the next 2 weeks, perhaps midweek, for a day....somewhere around Tahoe: Royal Gorge area, Mt Rose (this place is Fantastic!, though a bit further drive...), the meadows above Tahoe City are really sweet, or other area I haven't been. I've also been to Bear Valley area....
Are any of you available mid week? I'd be open to a weekend trip as well.
Other ideas in the works: Spooner Lake Cabin for a one-night overnight, perhaps a 2-nighter...
I want to get to the Glacier Point cabin this year as well....for a 2 night trip....
and then there is Hope Valley...sounds really nice, though I've never been...
and the Bear Valley Telemark Festival, presented by Mountain Adventure Sports. (I went last year to this Festival, and it was fantastic!)....
Hooking up with other skiiers is a priority for me, so please feel free to contact me via cell phone: 415-505-3536.
Throw out some ideas of your own, and let's get out there!

how back country is backcountry? I don't need groomed trails -- but I'm not a telemarker.

mostly been to the Tahoe/Donner and Kirkwood areas -- I'd like to try Bear Valley this year.

mid-week probably not an option for me.

Will you be at the Rusty Binding meetup on Tuesday night?

I can't go to the meeting, as I will be teaching at that time. There will be a lot of new snow this week, and I'm working on a plan to go skiing this weekend....ANYONE UP FOR HITTING BACKCOUNTRY THIS WEEKEND?
