Winter mountain conditions prevail. With winter here, please combine caution, education, and the right skills and equipment when contemplating any activity near Timp. Avalanche activity is commonplace and extremely dangerous. Various snow motes are present and have claimed lives in the past. Crampons, ice axes, avalanche beacon, probe, and shovel are a must as a minimum when snow is present. As snow accumulates travel is not recommended in most areas on and around Timp.
See our Facebook page for recent photos. It will be updated from time to time.Read more »
TERT has now finished its 34th year (Summer 2016) and the team is no longer on the mountain. We do have members who occasionally hike a little later into the fall while conditions remain safe. If you are missing the mountain this winter, take heart in this presentation put together by Eagle Scout Dylan Gardner.
TERT will reconvene for our 35th year for training in spring 2017. If you would like to know how to become a member of TERT, please visit the join page. We are always looking for medically trained people and ham radio operators who enjoy hiking and can handle the 5.5 miles to our camp. We also welcome ham radio operators that can manage the Timpooneke and Aspen Grove trail head posts. These do not require a strenuous hike and a campsite is provided near trail heads.
As winter takes hold, feel free to share photos and updates to our Facebook page, which is much easier to interact with for most folks. We will try to re-share your posts to our page as time allows.Read more »
