alpine yurt ski trip - san juan powder days - March 11, 2011

The WMC is taking a group of lucky skiers to the Ridgeway Hut in the San Juan Mountains for 4 days/3nights of Back Country Skiing in March 2011. Ridgeway is a wooden hut, with a capacity of eight skiers. It has eight padded bunks, propane cook stove, propane lamp, wood stove, firewood and all necessary cookware and utensils. Water is obtained by melting snow. LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: The strong, experienced skier will enjoy and be challenged by BC skiing in this area. An advanced level of fitness and high-intermediate to advanced downhill ski abilities are essential. This means being comfortable skiing 'black runs' with a 15-20 lb pack in backcountry snow conditions. Please no snowshoers or XC skiers. PAYMENT: $105/person. Please e-mail the trip leader with a short list of experience/classes along with a contact phone number. BC skiers will need to adhere to the Hut rules; which includes leaving the hut in better shape than found. Approved BC skiers have 7 days to submit full payment to leader or the skier could lose their spot. Refunds will only be given if there are approved participates on the wait list and one of these is able to pay for said position. There are no refunds for inclement weather, nor is there any guarantee for powder. NOT INCLUDED: Transportation to Trail head, Food (we will try to organize group food, yet this is not in the cost of the hut), Guiding service, Personal Gear
