Travel under the rugged and beautiful peaks of Archangel Valley and up Reed Creek for a spectacular weekend of skiing and winter camping. Plan on meeting at the Carrs Muldoon parking lot near the bakery at 9 am on Saturday March 30. From there we’ll car pool to the trailhead at the intersection of the Archangel Road and the Hatcher Pass Road. This is about ¾ mile past the former Motherlode lodge. If you’d rather meet us at the trailhead, we’ll meet about 10:30 am. Expect to ski about 3 ¾ miles before we set up camp, gaining about 500 feet of altitude in that distance. Camp will be set up between Goodhope Creek and the former mine buildings near Snowbird Creek. We’ll dig a pit for a common area for cooking and set up tents near the pit. Bring your own camping gear and food. A parts list is attached for suggestions. Be prepared for the elements, wind, cold and precipitation, including rain. For those skiing with their dogs, porcupines are in the area.
There is a day tour option for those who prefer not to spend the night.
