How to Get There:
Event Directions:   We skin up Skoki Trail to just past the ski resort boundary, turn climber's right to enter Wolverine Valley, follow the valley drainage up towards Unity Peak, rise above tree-line then swing climber's right to gain Wolverine Ridge's top using its lowest angled, NE, aspect (as conditions and terrain allow).

Notes:
This is an EASY, FRIENDLY PACED tour ... perhaps only about 2 km/h or so on the up-track. The down-track is expected to be clear sailing, with minor poling or skating and no skinning. Happy cruising!
