Have you never been on skis before?  Never winter camped? This trip is for you! 

Red heather is a wonderful place to learn how to ski because it has very moderate slopes. However, skiing for the first time is challenging (especially if you are tele skiing) and learning in powder conditions makes it even more difficult. If you come on this trip looking to learn how to ski,  you should not expect a successful experience, but you should expect to have fun. Falling into powder is almost as satisfying as skiing through powder. 

We will be camping at red heather (although not in the hut). It will be cold but if you come prepared then you will be warm (no promises). If this is your first time winter camping that is ok, I will go over the basics at the pre trip meeting. 

We may merge with the brew hut trip depending on the interest
