Staying at Elfin, night of Monday Feb 20, because it's not full.  Mostly Elfin gets full of Weekend Warriors, but this is a Monday, so not full.  We are going to go up on skis, but if snowshoes are your preferred method of travel, we won't discriminate.  This trip is Beginner Friendly in the sense that we won't leave you to die up there or anything like that.  If you don't know how to ski, we can show you how.  

Elfin is heated.  Cooking stoves are provided.  If you've never been to Elfin, here's your chance.  I have room for exactly three more people in my Jeep.  I can assist with details like food preparation if you aren't sure what to bring, but if you are gluten and lactose intolerant and a vegetarian, I probably can't help you.

Purpose of all this is to see what Parks offers its users and to compare with our own huts, which are cheaper but may have fewer amenities.

If you want one of the three remaining spots in my car, it would be best to email me, but you can always use the signup protocol.
