Hi ladies! Let's get on rope and practice with our rappel devices and get familiar with the other descenders we looked at in January. We will also review our safety checks and practice our fireman belays. We will meet at the Devils Kitchen parking lot at 2:00 and practice until dark (if the parking lot is full, park at the picnic area and walk over). If anyone does not have a park pass, let us know, and we can arrange a carpool with someone who has one. Please bring your static ropes, webbing, harnesses and helmet.

It's time we got an alpine skiing group together! Let's have a subset of WSA that does multi-day ski trips. There is a group of us that have Epic Passes that include Telluride, CB, Vail, Breckenridge, Beaver Creek. We're looking for people to ski with! I've rented a condo for this event, I hope we fill it. If we get lots of interest, the group can pool together and rent another or bigger place. CB is 1.5 hrs from Montrose and 2.5 from GJ. If interested you'll be put on what meetup calls waitlist and I'll communicate with folks by email off site. The event co-listed with Montrose Hiking Meetup.
