This will be a moderate XC ski from Red Mountain Pass on an old railroad grade to Ironton Park. We will park cars for shuttling. The entire route is downhill, probably on unbroken snow, with a short steep section near the end. This is a backcountry winter outing. SO! recommends that all participants educate themselves about avalanche risks, conditions, and safety and carry appropriate gear (avalanche beacon, shovel, and probe).
Carpool $8. 4WD preferable. No dogs.
