Ski Touring and Nordic Skiing - Advanced II Trips
The winter wonderland trip to Imogene Lake is one of our favorite 3-day ski tours. On Saturday, we will ski 5 or 6 fairly flat miles to Hell Roaring Lake (with only the first mile on a snowmobile trail) and camp. On Sunday we will day tour to Imogene Lake and beyond, depending on the strength of the party. There is a stiff 800-ft climb up the winter trail from Hell Roaring Lake before the terrain eases. We ski out and return to Boise on Monday (President’s Day). Back country touring skis are most appropriate for this trip. Rondenee or telemark gear is fine albeit heavier.
Ski peak 9,220 near Copper Mountain from Stanley Basin. Strong intermediate backcountry skiing skills required. Moderate pace. Difficult terrain. Backcountry or light telemark gear, skins and transceivers required. 10.5 miles/2,400’ elevation gain. Limit 6, no dogs. 100 miles from Boise.
