This trip is now being organized using the classic VOC trip signup tool. We will have a pre-trip meeting Tuesday Feb. 14th at 6PM outside the club room to split into self-sufficient car+tent+food groups based on availability/skiing ability/objectives.

Beyond the pre-trip meeting, the trip will be self-organized among the groups involved.


February 18-26, 2017

You decide how many days you want to come up, and find partners to match.
