Interested to get into back country skiing? Red Heather is probably THE easiest destination. 

This is a skiing trip, but snowshoers and snowboarders are welcome. You are responsible for getting matched skis, skins and ski boots which fit your feet well. No avi gear is required, but it would be nice to have them and we may practice beacon search. 

Tentative as we want to have somewhat decent snow. 

Update: If you are interested in learning to winter camp, a few people will camp overnight. Please indicate if you are interested in one or both days in the trip signup.
