The goal for this trip is to explore some of the terrain south of Mt. Haig (Castle Resort). The plan will be to park at the sled staging lot beside castle, then head in on snowmobiles. We'll stick mainly to established trails, so backcountry/powder riding skills aren't strictly necessary, but you should be comfortable as a driver or passenger on a mountain sled with a pack and your skis. Hopefully we can find a fun spot to park the sleds and skin up for some laps or a decent climb. The group sized is 4 because I can provide use of 2 mountain sleds, so 2 riders each. You may need to ride side by side (one on each running board). If others with access to snowmobiles are interested we can expand the group size a little. Participants will be asked to kick in a gas money for the machines and transportation of them (minimal). Skiers and split boarders are both welcome.
If we haven't ridden together please email me any relevant info on your experience with skiing and sledding as I will be vetting group members. Participants need to be competent backcountry skiers with at least AST1. Some experience snowmobiling off of groomed trails would help, but not strictly necessary.
