nordic ski tour: upper setting road (uintas) - January 21, 2012

The snow should be well settled in the Uintas by now and prime for touring. The scenic basin below Castle Peak is reached at the 6 mile mark (2,000 ft. elevation gain), however, Jerry says that he will turn around when the group is ready. Metal-edged skis would be suitable for this trip, with scales, skins, or swix. Beacons are not required. General winter safety gear is recommended. Call Jerry for more information if driving from Park City. Carpool rate is 0.15 per mile per vehicle plus gas, divided by number of occupants. Mirror Lake Highway user fee is $6.00 per vehicle or annual pass if you have one. Meet just SW of (beyond) Cowboy Grub lot.
