bruneau dunes sand ski tour

The former annual Bruneau Dunes ski trip makes a return. Sand skiing at it's finest 400 ft vertical on 30 degree plus slopes. Located at Bruneau Dunes State Park about half way between Twin Falls and Boise Idaho. The park features an excellent grassy campground with hot showers for removing the fine layer of grit from a full day of skiing, An observatory with an 16 inch telescope with evening programs. The standard program is folks arrive on Friday evening, ski a full day on Saturday, short day on Sunday and then head home, but it's ok to set your own schedule. We will have a Saturday evening potluck and social. Transportation will need to be arranged individually, contact the organizer and he will assist in setting up car pooling. Skiing is best done on older telemark gear since we normally set a few up tracks that do not require skins or scales. Alpine gear and snowboards also ok but are a lot more work. I'm sure all rookies will have questions. so feel free to ask!
