nordic ski tour box canyon erickson basin loop (uintas)

Cross-country (xc) ski tour. The trip starts and finishes at the Thousand Peaks Ranch winter parking area on the Weber River Road. We first skied this route (not shown on any Uinta backcountry ski maps) in February 2009. The route traverses the ridge at an unnamed 10,300 feet saddle into Erickson Basin. Generally, lighter weight backcountry touring gear (with scales, or skins) is used (e.g. Fischer S-bound 78 skis). Contact organizer if driving from the Park City area. Remember to bring $7- $10 if you are a passenger. High energy trip. Beacons and shovel required. Winter safety and cold weather gear (wind) and headlamps advised.
