Clothing List
It is recommended to bring light clothing of varying thicknesses that can be ‘layered’ to achieve comfort and versatility. The most important consideration for clothing is the ability to regulate temperature as you change from periods of activity to periods of rest and from the ascent to the descent.

• Polypro underwear (top & bottom)
• Warm pants (nylon blend, insulated or fleece)
• Warm shirts (not cotton)
• Medium weight fleece sweater
• Fleece Jacket
• Light insulated jacket or vest
• Waterproof jacket with hood (Gore-Tex or nylon)

    Jeff had warned us it was going to be deep – but I never would’ve guessed it would be THAT DEEP ! This was an amazing 3-day trip in a small group, and Jeff went out of his way to personalize / customize it based on weather, snow and avi conditions. His description was bang on – it was an amazing x-mas gift for my son and I. I highly recommend the tour if you want to discover the hidden stashes in Rogers Pass, unless of course you’re allergic to face shots at every turn (which is what we were treated to when we were coming down Mushroom People in the Asulkan drainage). Highly recommended – its a slower time of the year at the Pass with the holidays, which makes fresh tracks even easier to find !
