Event Details:

•          Saturday, February 9 at 3pm. Meet at the Tram at 2:30pm.

•           $50 in advance at Alpenglow Sports | $60 day-of, on-site.

•           Alpenglow Sports offers free rentals all day for the tour. Must be picked up by 1pm. Rental gear can be returned at the end of the tour at the event, or at the shop the next day.

•           Make sure you dress appropriately with warm uphill gear, skis, skins, boots, poles and headlamp! Consider bringing a change of clothes for drinks and dinner afterward at High Camp.
