We are planning to ski the Chilkoot Trail next spring.  Stay tuned for more details.

October 11.  Ben Stewart to Mount Meek traverse. Carl is leading a traverse across the north end of Douglas Island. The traverse starts at Eaglecrest, climbs Mount Ben Stewart, crosses the ridge line to Mount Meek, and descends a trail to North Douglas Highway. This trip will take place unless the weather is really bad as we can turn around if it’s socked in up high. This is a strenuous but non technical climb that will require bushwhacking and route-finding. If you are interested, please contact Carl before 7PM Friday Oct 10th 723 -9323.

Contact the trip leader before participating in this climb.

October 15.  Wednesday evening all weather climb. We will meet at 5PM for a strenuous two hour hike in just about any weather. Meet at the tables at Foodland at 5PM. We will decide where we want to go that day.

October 18. Blackerby Ridge and perhaps Cairn Peak. Dani Evenson is leading a trip up Blackerby Ridge. If weather and trail conditions allow the goal is Cairn Peak. This trip will take place unless the weather is really bad as we can turn around if it’s socked in up high. This is a moderate climb that should take 8-10 hours. If you are interested please contact Dani by 7PM Friday October 17rd. 350-4350

Contact the trip leader before participating in this climb.

Monday October 20: Glacier and mountaineering skills practice. This will be indoors. We are meeting at either the Mendenhall River Elementary School under the covered basketball court or the Rock Dump. We still need to check details on using the school. This event will happen at 5:30 pm to when ever, rain or shine. Topics will depend on who shows up but will cover issues related to crevasse rescue and glacier safety. Bring any gear you have: harness, rope, carabiners, prussics…NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED.

Contact Pete Boyd 907-523-5279 by 7 pm Sunday if you plan on attending or have any questions.

Contact the trip leader before participating; don’t just show up. Pete needs at least 2 people to confirm they will show up.

October 29.  Wednesday evening all weather climb. We will meet at 5PM for a strenuous two hour hike in just about any weather. Meet at the tables at Foodland at 5PM. We will decide where we want to go that day.

Tuesday November 4. Monthly Meeting at the Waffle Company. 6:30 PM. We will plan November’s climbs and hikes. All are welcome. Come with ideas or to meet other mountaineering folks. Do a snow dance for a great snow year.
