Description:

EDIT Now leaving early Saturday instead of Friday

Let's go to Frosty Mouuuuuntaaaaain!

Saturday - Drive to Manning Park (Lightning Lake), skin up ~9km//600m vert to Frosty Camp ("cooking shelter" but we'll be winter camping) 

Those with avi experience summit Frosty Mountain (pretty straight forward technically) another 4km//500m vert. Those who are hungover or less experienced do some chill tree skiing around the camp (might include me as I am recovering from a knee injury yay).

Sunday - (more laps?) ski out & drive back & wonder why you go to school at all.

To come, you should have:

  • STOKE
  • some experience with avalanche safety gear, however AST1 is NOT required (required if you want to summit/go into more avalanche prone areas)
  • skiing experience
  • backpacking experience
  • warm layers
  • alcohol and mixer of your choice for a bar potluck!

If you are reading this, you are wrong not to come, and should consult your doctor.
