Beginners Ski Tour of Tumalo

This trip will be 2.5 days/2 in the out of doors. Preliminary plan: Split board and ski tour from Swampy Lakes Trailhead to a new shelter for the first night (1.5 miles), eat lots of delicious food, put our feet up at the fire and rest. Next day, charge the backside of Tumalo for laps in the powder (+/- 4 miles)! That night we'll sleep in our backcountry camp near the base. We will then ski out the next morning (1.5-2miles) to the trailhead. This tour is open to beginners, but considering the overnight element of the trip it will be on the intermediate side. The barn has limited gear for rent, so Berg's could be your second choice. Maximum group size of 10, so sign up!
