This can be a hard slog for some or an enjoyable long walk for others. It really depends on your own conditioning and attitude. Let's make it an enjoyable long walk!

A NOTE ON CONDITIONING - You need to be in good shape for this. That does not mean that you go to the gym a lot! That means that you are actively and regularly putting on a pack with weight and hiking several miles. That is the only way to really get in good shape for these kinds of activities. I expect you to, and the team depends on you to, be in good shape, capable of doing this trip. Please be ready. This is not an elitist thing. It is a safety matter.

Winter trips are always a roll of the dice. Conditions can vary and change the plans last minute. we're hoping for good conditions and weather that make for a great day! In any case, this is a long day. A good size lunch and a few snacks will be needed. Also, it is likely that there will not be water available on the route. You will need to carry all your water for the day. I recommend 4 liters.
