Pushing this out a week to give people more time to plan. I'll being doing dawn patrol tomorrow if anyone wants to join.
I confirmed with a ski patrol yesterday that we can sleep in the warming hut at the top of Abay. I'm not sure why we haven't done this yet, but we need to make it happen. It is going to snow the next few days, let's take advantage. Can't stop, won't stop.
When: Meet at the Dino lot at 8pm on Friday evening, start skiing at 9:30, snuggle in and wait for the sunrise.
Where: ABasin warming hut
What to bring: uphill transportation (snow shoes, skins, split board), sleeping bag, snacks, bevs, headlamp, layers (I bring an extra shirt for the top), entertainment like cards or music, sleeping bag, sleeping pad.
We might want to keep this smaller so we aren't abusing the warming hut. The patroller said the guys running the cats might wake us up coming in there, but they won't kick us out. I can't emphasize this enough, let's be respectful. I want to continue to be able to skin up to this hut.
