The Beartooth Nordic and Hiking Club is a place for people who love the outdoors to meet others who have similar interests. We operate as a group of friends who get together for hiking, biking, skiing, and a few social gatherings. If you choose to participate in an outdoor activity with us, you assume the inherent risks in that activity. BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN ANY ACTIVITY, It is your responsibility TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND THOSE RISKS AND to contact the trip organizer to assess whether or not this activity is suitable for you and to learn what equipment you may need. If you participate in our activities, we ask that you pay dues of $7.50 per year. Our hikes and other activities are posted on our facebook page at Beartooth Nordic and Hiking club. Please visit our facebook page for the latest details. If you are interested in organizing a hike, feel free to post the details of the hike on this meet up page. Please include mileage, altitude gain and level of difficulty.
Meet at City Brew at 24th and King. This is a 6 mile loop. Snow shoes or skis, though sometimes the snow is firm enough to hike. Climbing skins are needed for skis. If anyone is interested in pushing up onto Silver Run Plateau I'd like to do that. Bring clothing, food, and equipment suitable for a 4 hour snow trek.
We will stop at the saddle between Ingles and Silver Run for lunch. Those who want to go to the plateau will split off from there.
I rented back country skis from the Base Camp. Also I have a spare set of rope skins I can lend.
