Camel's Hump Challenge this February! It is a 13-mile ski tour around the summit of Camel's Hump and the day is filled with good people, camaraderie, hot chocolate, and warm food. This will be Tristan's second time skiing the Challenge (third if you count breaking trail the day before last year) and it will be my first time! Though I have volunteered there in the past, making soup. We're both very excited.
As for gear, Tristan will be skiing on his Rossignol BC 125's (mounted with 3-pin hardwire bindings and with a Garmont Excursion boot) and I will be skiing either on the same ski or on my Karhu 10th mountains (same binding and boot for me, too). Also note, the 10th is the same thing as the current Madshus Epoch. (For a full run-down of backcountry, or cross-country-downhill / xc-d skis, click here.

Please consider joining us or, if you would prefer not to, you can donate to sponsor one of us (Click here for Sarah or here for Tristan). The money goes to support the VT Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. Many thanks for your support and we hope to see you out there!
Happy trails, and get outside.
