Clemens and I are bringing Feuerzangenbowle back to Brew Hut this year.

The plan is to go to Brew Hut on Saturday, yo-yo some mellow beginner-friendly slopes (if you make to the hut in good time and still have energy), and enjoy a warm hut of merry time with delicious mulled wine. We will split the cost for the ingredients of making Feuerzangenbowle (~$5 per person), and distribute weight carrying between participants. On Sunday, you can have more skiing before heading down.

This is a "advenced-beginner friendly" trip because skinning up to Brew Hut means 10km of logging road + 5km of forest/meadow not-easy terrain, the total elevation gain is ~1300m! You need to be able to take care of yourself in winter backcountry conditions, physically fit to be comfortable achieving the above-mentioned distance & climb. If this is your first or second time backcountry skiing, this is probably not the trip for you; but if you have been out a few times and want to gain more beginner-intermediate level backcountry overnight experience, you are most welcome to join. We are not going for big difficult objects so we will take our pace and won't leave you behind.

Any questions/concerns, feel free to post on the message board for discussion.
