ski tour upper setting road - January 20, 2008
The snow should be well settled in the Uintas by now, so it should be prime for touring. The interesting basin below Castle Peak is reached at the 6 mile mark (2,000 ft. elevation gain), however, Jerry says he will turn around when the group is ready. Metal-edged skis would be suitable for this trip. Skins are definitely OK too. Call Jerry for more information if driving from Park City. Winter sports safety gear recommended. Carpool rate is .15 per mile per vehicle plus gas. Mirror Lake Hwy fee is $3.00.
