It happened again! Biggest ever, about seventy folks showed up. We began doing this a long time ago, so for me it was something like number thirty. Independence Pass is probably in the best ski touring condition in forty of fifty years. Thanks everyone for showing up. Folks agreed, let’s do it next year, first Saturday the Pass is open. See you there.
