Camp Muir & Anvil Rock


Backcountry Ski/Snowboard - Camp Muir & Anvil Rock

Day ski tour to Camp Muir. Lots of fun descent options depending on the wet loose situation, group preference, and time available.

  • M2 Advanced Ski, Snow Scramble, Winter Scramble, Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,600 ft

We will plan to meet at Longmire at 8:30.  If the gate is open please proceed to Paradise and we will meet at the base of the steps at 9:15 to start skinning.  If the gate is closed, Longmire can be an efficient place to put on skins if it is cold down there.

AIARE L1 course required to join the trip

Please follow the "request leader's permission" link and describe your skiing experience

Fitness to make it to Camp Muir in 4 hours or less.  It is ok if you don't, we'll pick you up on the skin track on the way down, but it is always nice to keep the group together and it gives us a chance to evaluate how we are all feeling when picking descent options.
