I'm proposing a grand loop tour, from Badger Pass to June Lake and then back west again to Yosemite Valley. This tour is for advanced skiers with previous long-tour experience. We'll be attempting to make each traverse in three days, with a one-day layover in June Lake. This tour will be fast and lite-weight, but that advantage will be balanced out by big mileage. Expect to be skiing 8-10 hours a day!
It will be possible to join us for only 1/2 of the tour (from Badger to June or June to Yosemite), but determining your transportation to or from June Lake will be entirely up to you.
Day One: Meet at Curry Village, Yosemite Valley, to do a gear check and deposit one car, then drive up to Badger Pass Ski Area for the first night.
A note about the photos. None of these photos are depictions of the actual tour conditions! Rather, they are photos from previous Sierra traverses that I've done over the past two years to give the reader an idea of the terrain we'll be traveling through.
