This will be a ski tour from Glenn Alps to Ship Lake Pass. We will head out from the Glenn Alps parking lot shortly after 10 am, expect to be out for 5-6 hours. This is an 'out-and-back' trip, so some people may choose to go part way to the pass.
You will need: skis, skins, poles, appropriate clothing, food and drinks for the day. A thermos full of warm tea or hot chocolate can be great on one of these trips. Please make sure your skins/skis/boots/poles are all in good shape.
If you plan to join for the later ski tours from Arctic to Indian or Arctic to Bird, or Glenn Alps to Indian, this is a great way to meet other people and do a shake down on your gear. It is also a great way to find ski partners who are similar speed, and to discuss future trips.
Metal edged skis are recommended, although I know some people will do this without. Most any skis will work - tele, A.T., light or heavier.
Three of us are co-leading this trip, so if there is a larger group we can split up.
The parking at Glenn Alps can be crowded, if you want to car pool, meet in the coffee shop at Carrs Huffman at 9:30
