Description:

Are you ready to Hike (with skis on your back and maybe get some skiing)?!?

Are you ready for Halloween?!

I sure am. I'd like to hike up to Brew hut with some skis and try to find some snow. I'd like to try to ski on that snow while wearing a sweet costume.

This is NOT a beginner friendly trip. It IS an intermediate friendly trip.

If you are interested in maybe (or maybe not) finding skiable snow, if you already know how to ski and if you are prepared to hike for many hours for your love of skiing, and if that still sounds like a fun idea to you even when forced into wearing a costume: this trip is for you!

Pretrip meeting on Wednesday at 5:30pm-6:30pm outside (or maybe inside of) the Clubroom.

This is my first trip out this year, so we will definately be doing some beacon searches and playing with our probes and such.

I'd like to keep this a small group. max 6 people (plus me and Elliott)

PS- our plan B is currently to camp at the lake, because there is a large group registered at the hut (let's talk more about this at the pre-trip..but perhaps be ready for winter camping...)
