Pasayten Ski Traverse, April/May 2012 - Seeking Partner(s) on 03/22/2012 01:07:53 MDT Print View

I am seeking a partner or two for a multi-day low-angle ski tour in mid-to-late April following one of a number of possible loops or through routes in the Pasayten Wilderness. My current favorite idea is to follow a high country corridor roughly along the Boundary Trail from east to west, perhaps continuing as far west as the Pasayten River and exiting south via the Middle Fork Pasayten and Robinson Creek valleys. (Rough guess: 100+ miles)

For inspiration, consider the Pasayten ski tours documented by Chester Marler: Parts One and Two (1940s), Part Three (late 1990s).

I'm no hot-shot skier, no downhill experience, hence the gentler grades of the Pasayten. I usually travel solo on longer walking trips, but I'm looking for a partner for this trip. PM or post if interested.

Anybody potentially interested for late April/early May? Should be an awesome, remote trip.
