Mount Ritter & Ritter Range Ski/Splitboard Mountaineering (+Peak Bagging)

    Bloody should be okay. Ritter range is much further in with a long traverse and greater Avy danger along the way and in the range. FYI - This storm we are about to get starting Thursday is supposed to be the biggest of the season. Historically, Feb is the biggest snowiest month. This storm will yield 10+ feet of snow. This is why I moved this trip. BC will be gnarly. Once it settles, it should be great.

    Richard, any updates on these dates? Trying to nail down my President Day weekend plans. Thanks, Mike

      As of today, I'm moving this trip to end of March or April as most other BC folks are now targeting. I'm loving the snow, but AVY danger is extremely high currently. There have been lots of slides around Mammoth, the Sherwins slid recently as well. More snowfall is expected and I want to be safe. You're all welcome to join me at the resort though. :)

      Hey Richard, are you considering the same for the bloody couloir trip?

  • Mike L.

    Richard, Do you anticipate any changes or cancellation of this trip? Due to too much snowfall and AVI danger, or otherwise? I'm still planning on these dates, but wanted to confirm as much as possible knowing lots can happen between now and then. Mike

      Hi Mike, there is now a 40-50% chance this will get moved as well. Weather predictions are coming in strong for February, as strong as January is/was. The other guides/BC experts I've been discussing with are moving their BC trips to late March-May this year due to the amount of snowfall and AVI danger.

    Do you have to have to ski or board to join this outing? I'm a peakbagger/mountaineer and want Banner and Ritter but don't ski or board. Thanks!

      Sorry, but yes, it is required. This is a ski/splitboard mountaineering trip with an optional summit.

      Thanks, and yeah, I realized that a while back when I read it more carefully.
