Starting at the Pocaterra Hut, we will ski the Pocaterra trail as far as we can for 2.5 hours (heading towards Elk Pass). Then we ski back on the same path to the hut. No loops or alternate trails will be allowed. That way everyone can go at their own comfortable pace and no one gets lost. I will ski at a fairly slow pace, others may ski at whatever pace they are comfortable with, the only requirement is to get back to the hut by 2:30 pm. After a late lunch in the hut we will start drive back to town about 3:30 pm.
