Let's ring in 2022 with a stunning XC ski at the top of McClure Pass. We will try to make it to at least first gate and have lunch. Gentle grade the entire way until we turn around. No AT gear needed. Just basic XC skis or metal edge skis. No skins needed. Total mileage 6-8 miles depending on weather and group's fitness level.

Participants will need to be intermediate skiers and comfortable skiing without groomed tracks. Participants will need to snowplow coming down and should have experience with controlled downhill for 3 miles.


Highway 133 to McClure Pass is prone to avalanches so if there is high or critical avalanch danger we will do Coal Basin road instead that is by Redstone.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
