IDAHO ALPINE CLUB GENERAL MEETING

"SKI MOUNTAINEERING: NORWAY, SLOVENIA AND WYOMING"

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2017 @ 7:00 PM
DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
555 WEST 25TH ST


The Norwegian Trekking Association maintains a system of 500 cabins and winter outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the use of 6500 km of ski trails marked by the Trekking Association each winter. Wilson resident Brigid Mander and some friends recently took advantage of Norway’s convenient hut system to acces some primo ski mountaineering destinations in Norway’s backcountry and she will show images of this outing at this month’s general meeting.


Brigid is an avid adventurer and she has also gotten off the beaten path skiing in Slovenia’s Julien Alps which form the southern end of the greater Alps mountain chain. She and her friends spent time carving turns in Triglav National Park and on the Komna Plateau in between taking turns sampling their Slavic guide’s homemade herbed liqueur.

Not to ignore attractions closer to home, Brigid also spent a week wandering around the Wind River Range battling snowstorms and whiteouts while looking for skiable couloirs in Titcomb Basin and on Mt. Ellingwood.

Brigid is a writer and editor and her work has appeared in Backcountry and Jackson Hole Magazines. She also frequently writes about the outdoor life for the Wall Street Journal. Come and enjoy images of her winter adventures on two different continents. The meeting is open to the public and all outdoor enthusiasts are invited to attend.




Hiking Schedule

October 21, 2017: Big Hole Crest Trail.
This hike will be as long as we decide to make it. We will leave the parking lot off Hwy 31 near Pine Creek Pass and head out. This trail is commonly an overnight trek, but we will probably go 8-12 miles round trip, out and back. . Depart 7:30 am from the Fred Meyer/McDonald’s parking lot. Please call Susan McKinley at 520-3784 prior to the hike.

Road biking routes in southeastern Idaho ranging from 20-25 miles up to about 50 mile alternatives have been developed by Barb Brown, Judy Williams, Gay Gilbert, and others over the past 17 years for use by a weekly Tuesday morning riding group. Mapman Alan Crockett (and protégé Jeb Blakeley) have improved the early rough schematics using GPS hardware and DeLorme software.
