Hi all, due to a few folks bailing I have some open spots on a trip to the Norway Yurt in the Wallowa Mountains, NE Oregon. Dates are Feb 11th-16th; head in Sun morning and out Fri afternoon. The total trip cost is $312.50, not including food or booze. BYOB and everyone will be responsible for 1 group meal+their own lunches. 

The trip is self-guided and has a total of 12 spots, 8 of which are currently filled. We're a mix of laid back, fun, and experienced skiers from mostly NE Oregon and Idaho. We range from late 20s to mid-30s. All are welcome as long as you have some decent mountain time/ski touring experience and can get along with a bunch of other like-minded skiers and outdoor enthusiasts...which shouldn't be hard to do! Due to working in the area for a number of years I am quite familiar with the area (during the snow-free seasons) and one of the individuals coming has a few hundred days of collective Wallowas touring time.

The snowpack has been a little subpar most of this winter, like much of the west, but has been greatly improving over the last couple weeks and with a very promising forecast ahead. We will, however, almost certainly be dealing with some persistent weak layer type problems that may limit us a bit. But, I have no doubt that there will be lots of great skiing and exploration to be had!

The yurt itself is a double decker and includes the requisite sauna. 

If at all interested feel free to respond to me with a post on here, at nickpdx@gmail.com, or by texting/calling me at 503.962.0023.

Hope to hear from some of you,

Cheers!

Still looking to fill a couple spots on the trip. With the 11th rapidly approaching, I could be willing to cut folks a deal and "subsidize" the cost by a compelling amount! 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
