The Team up there July 19th does not recommend going down the snowfield. A 100-yard gap in snow exists and the dirt between is very difficult going. Lots of rock exposed in the snow field. It would be much easier going back to the Saddle and going down as you went up. Rocks in the snow make in dangerous to slide down the remaining snow. Glen – July 21, 2014Read more »
TERT – our 31st year! We had our second training session on May 17th at Theater in the Pines at Aspen Grove. There were about 70 there. FS, SO, and SAR were represented. Had some good lectures and classes. Lifeflight came in and gave us some good training. Two of our leaders got to hang from the hoist cable as the helicopter flew around and showed us how it is done.
High Camp and Trail Head are on the mountain and are there Friday evenings through Sunday mornings until late September. The Trail Head members are usually in the Trail Head shacks to answer any questions, encourage you to sign the hiking list, and help you if there are problems. The High Camp team camps near Emerald Lake and usually hangs out at the Emerald Lake Shelter during the day. Usually the High Camp team has 4 to 6 people. They have radio communications with both Trail Heads. Say hi to the team when you go up there. Glen 7-15-14.Read more »
