Feel like an adventure? Here is a moderately adventurous trip for those x country skiiers looking to take thier level up a notch.

Bryant Creek Shelter is located about a four hour ski from the foot of Mount Shark. We must be on the trail head, foot of Mount Shark, by noon in order to arrive at the cabin before dark. About 15 km. We overnight, pot luck dinner and have an easy ski out next day.

The shelter is basic. Two persons sleep per wooden platform. I have booked 8 spots. If this trip fill up quick enough I may be abl to reserve four additional spots. If not, we may be sharing with four others. I might also book another night in February or March. There is an outhouse. It will be cozy! The wooden fire place heats the cabin well enough. If in shape, i.e. you can "walk" four hours you can do this trip. There is nothing particularly challenging; some undulating terrain. 3/4 of the trail is not groomed. If you are in moderate shape, are relatively comfortable on x country or light touring skiis, can carry a backpack four hours then by all means join us.

Costs: Depending upon if all 8 join us; about $15 depending upon group size.

I may rent satellite phone;(in case of an emergency)

There is one trail in. It is impossible to get lost. I have done this trip about 20X and in +5C and - 20C so be prepared. If temperature is cold, and you keep moving you are fine. But spare gloves and good headware.

We will have a pre trip meeting; to be posted; We will discuss car pool details;
