Arrival back to the base of RED Mountain Resort. The BRC office is open until 6:00 pm, so you can pick up some swag to remember the epic day you just had! If you miss us, you can catch us again the next day when we open at 7:30 am.

Lunch is provided.  Please advise in advance if you are vegetarian, or have food allergies or aversions such as nuts, gluten, or dairy.  Please also advise the guides if you have any medical issues which could become important in a rescue situation.

You are welcome to bring additional snacks as well.  Although drinking alcohol while skiing is not permitted, you are welcome to bring cold cans for the cat descent after your last run.  There is space in the cat for a backpack with things such as extra mitts, goggles, hand warmers, and spare layers.  You may want to bring a Ziploc bag with some toilet paper. There are no outhouses in the wilderness.
