Backcountry "Touring for Turns'
« on: February 23, 2009, 06:04:12 pm »
Hi all,
New to this forum and excited to be here. We are skilled bc skiers who love to climb mountains and make turns through glades, stream beds, over blueberry barrens, what have you. We like touring but  REALLY like making turns.  What is even more fun is to access an area too remote to be done as a day trip. For that, you might guess, we have a Snowtrekker tent and a 4 dog stove which we load on a sled. Trouble is, few of our skiing friends want any part of the winter overnight option, and we have yet to connect with folks with warm winter camping interests who ski the stuff we like to ski!   So, any New Englanders around who share in both our passions?

Thought it might be.  I found this site through TLB (www.backpacking.net) when one of our members there posted the link. Now there are four of us from there, 3 Canadians and me.  If you haven't done it yet, read all the articles besides the forums.  They are really good.

Sorry,
No help from me. I am content to hear the sound (or lack of ) my skis on snow, my own breathing, and the other sounds of winter in the woods.

I'd ask on TGR's forums (Teton Gravity Research) or on Telemarktips.com
