Backcountry Snow Tour with Eric Erslev
Monday, February 7th, 9am – 12pm
Rock Creek Rd. Winter Trailhead
Come spend a morning with geologist Eric Erslev on a relaxed, educational backcountry tour on an easy winter trail. You can think of this trip as a backcountry version of the Ski With A Ranger tours that FDRD runs at the downhill ski areas. Our educational theme will be to explore the strategies used by wildlife and recreationalists to access our beautifully-snowy backcountry in the winter.
These tours are open to people using backcountry skis/split boards or snowshoes. While participants will be provided with a suggested gear list with some general suggestions, you will be expected to be self-sufficient, responsibly choosing and adjusting your own gear. We will not be traversing avalanche terrain, so no protective avalanche gear will be necessary.
