  • Experience preferred: reasonable fitness, linking turns on skis, skiing with an overnight pack, winter camping, avalanche awareness. 
  • We will go over the basics of crevasse rescue (not absolutely necessary but good to know) before the trip. Glacier School Manual.

If you are willing to help out, please sign up. We will need a number of more experienced skiers to make this trip happen.
