Come out for a ski on the solstice!  It will likely not be a big day considering it is the shortest day of the year.  Will decide on destination as we get closer to the date and see what snow levels are like.  Preference for participants with AST2, but would accept AST1 with back-country experience. 

Required Items to Bring:

Avalanche gear (3 antenna beacon, shovel and probe), back-country skis, skins etc., warm clothing, lunch.  Trip leader will bring InReach, tarp, first aid kit and small repair kit.  If you have an InReach or Spot, please bring it along. 

Recommended Items to Bring:

Something hot to drink.

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Rocky Mountain Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
