Description:

This is a traverse from rubble creek, up the swtich backs across the volcanic flats below the black tusk and out via the helm creek trail.

We will be camping at Taylor Meadows, where there is a shelter where we can... uh shelter!

This is beg friendly and shouldnt be quite as hard as the neve traverse. We will be camping, so we will need to bring tents.  The skiing is pretty mellow (hopefully), and we might have some time ski at taylor meadows on saturday (depending on speed).

People should have been on at least a trip or two and know how to pack for winter camping, but I wont leave you behind. This trip may involve some suffering. I have never done this traverse, so I make no guarantees.

There will probably be at least one snowshoer on this trip, so at the moment I am not discriminating.
