The Boss has approved the purchase of a Hero Pass for next winter
This will be an In & Out with no pre-season food dump
Looking for a like minded partner for some free-heel skiing for August

Share preparation/tent rebuilding etc and of course the car for the drive up and back.
I already have the sleds so no work involved there except the hauling

Provisionally keen.

I have (will have...) a nice cushy (heated) campervan, complete with hot shower, kitchenette and bulk solar/battery storage, and a big storage space. So plenty of options there for moving gear, or even a below snow-line base camp prior to heading off. Not too thirsty on the gas either.

HOWEVER - I have never skii'd, and have none of my own gear. Cross-country is on my list of "things I should have learned 3 years ago" and I still haven't had the opportunity to.

I have no idea whether that rules me out and wouldn't blame you AT ALL if you only want the compentant to accompany you. Even so, VERY likely the van will be based up round that region anyway for a few weeks over winter while I go snowshoeing at least. Would still be happy to assist.

What's wrong with being a beginner?
We all start somewhere and there is nothing wrong with snowshoes for sled hauling, I use them myself for very heavy loads
If you can find a pair of 75mm duckbill boots I can always loan you a set of skis
Start a thread in "Equipment" and see what others think you need

New BUMP because I now have the big tent, although that will be a work-in-progress for a while.
