Upcoming Boulder Group Trips

Saturday, 3/28/2015, Herman Gulch Sping Ski / Snowshoe

This is a moderate spring ski descent, with one of the shortest approaches in the Front Range. We'll meet early, hike in, skin and climb up the first gully off of the Herman Gulch trail. Tentative meeting time at trailhead is 8am. Carpooling will be encouraged, depending on logistics. Advanced backcountry ski skills required for skiing; snowshoe & glissade is the other option where participant should bring ice axe for self-arrest. Must have phone interview with trip leader to come on trip. Tele or alpine touring ski equipment, and avalanche beacons, shovels and probes required for skiers; snowshoers can climb up as much as they feel comfortable, then glissade back down, controlling their descent with an ice axe. Helmets required. Avalanche risk should be moderate, but we'll evaluate conditions on hike in.

Be prepared for any weather with good footwear, water, rain (or snow) jacket, headlamp/flashlight, and a snack to share if you like as we will stop for a few minutes.  Optional after hike food and/or drink at a restaurant near the clubroom.  NEW:  If there are 5 Wednesdays in any of the summer months, there will be a hike the first 4 Wednesdays just not on the 5th, UNLESS someone steps up and wants to lead it.  I will enter it for you if you'd like.
