Trip will leave Friday morning, 25 Jan, and return Sunday evening, 27 Jan. We will leave from the Badger Pass ski area. Meet at Badger Pass Ranger Station at 8 am (A-frame), ready to go. Departure time: 8:30 AM or earlier if everyone is present.
Friday: Start skiing at 8:30 am, reach hut by dusk. Make dinner.
Saturday: Ski Horse Ridge, have fun.
Sunday: Ski out in the morning, do some runs along the way.
Cost: $115 NONREFUNDABLE
(If I get my money back I will refund you, otherwise, don’t count on it)
Route: Interested in the Horizon Ridge trail. This is a harder and more strenuous option than the standard route. Metal edge skis and skins will be required. (sorry, due to difference in travel speed, I am limiting this trip to skis, only)
We will plan on group meals. Please take a look at the Conservancy site below for hut amenities or lack thereof, equipment list, and route descriptions. Each group should plan on bringing a stove/pot and bivi or tent (in case you get lost).
I will post a document for carpooling and organizing ourselves. If you don’t have access and are going on this trip, please send me an email.
I will update this meetup site as we go so please check back frequently. Failure to respond to emails or comments directed at you may result in your spot being given to someone else.
