2013 XC Trip Dates

Hi All

There's snow in the mountains.  And the skis are rattling in the cabinet.  Ski season is upon us.

We have confirmation on the trips for the 2013 season and all the caches are in.  It's "the usual" set of great trips -- an overnight to scenic Glacier Point, a two-nighter at Glacier Point, a three-night trip to the congenial Ostrander Ski Hut, and the four-night Trans-Sierra tour.

Special thanks to all those who took in the caches, with a particular hip-hip-hoorah for Mark and Betsy Blume for putting it all together, as well as getting the last of the stuff into the Glacier Point cabins.

Here's the schedule for the 2013 season:

January 19-20:  First Ski at the Pitts' Peregrine or Falcon's Nest in Yosemite West (7509 Henness Circle).
February 2-3:  Glacier Point I
February 15-18:  Ostrander Ski Hut
March 1-3:  Glacier Point II
March 20-24:  Trans-Sierra tour
