Snow Day – TRIP LIMITED TO VACCINATED PEOPLE ONLY

This is a fun day. We will be learning traversing snow fields using ice axes and helmets. Also how to proceed up a hill. And then self-arrest techniques. You will need to dress warm. We will spend time “playing” in the snow and so you get snow covered and potentially wet. Please wear appropriate clothing.

What to bring –

  1. Ten Essentials
  2. Something warm to drink
  3. Dress warm
  4. A shell or coat that is waterproof with a hood (so you do not get snow down your coat)
  5. Water or snow proof pants.
  6. Bring snowshoes if you have them (DO NOT RENT – not worth it)
  7. A sense of adventure
  8. MOST OF ALL A GREAT ATTITUDE!!

Please look over the materials for the Snow Day Module. Look at the handout for self-arrest techniques.

We will be meeting at Wooly Mammoth Park and Ride (exit for Red Rocks from I-70) Section DD at 9:00 and will depart at 9:05. Hoping to miss the ski traffic by meeting a bit later. We will stop at the Georgetown Visitor Center for a bathroom break. Then will proceed to the top of Loveland Pass.

Because of Omicron please be prepared to drive yourself. There may be carpools, but this is not guaranteed. Due to Omicron, we will not be stopping for a social event after the day.
