We will skin and ski around Vail Pass and take advantage of all this recent snow. The wind direction and weather will dictate the exact location we ski. Early season conditions exist may exist.  Plan for 2,500-3,000' elevation gain. If the avalanche forecast is Considerable or higher we will stay to lower angle terrain.

Backcountry AT/tele skis with skins, or splitboard required. Beacon, probe, shovel and the knowledge to use them are required.

You must be an experienced and capable skier. You must be able to confidently ski black terrain in all conditions.

You must have completed AIARE Companion Rescue or Avalanche Level 1 training, or similar within the past 5 years. The leader is an AIARE Certifed Instructor. Bring proper winter clothes, ten essentials and food/water for a full day.

Contact the leader with your experience to register.
