Troop 4 had a great backpacking trip this past weekend. 15.5 miles and over 3000ft of elevation gain. It got cold, (35ºF) but everyone made it and gained confidence.
Participants need to complete a Big Bear Liability form and BSA Permission form. You can download those here. You will also need to get a completed BSA Part C health form signed by your physician if you have not had one done in the last year.
At this point we will plan to depart from Scouthaus at 5 am as the trip takes about 3 hours to drive and lifts open at 8:30am. Slopes close at 4pm, so will likely be back around 9pm with stop for dinner.
On the day of the trip, please bring the following:
- Sunscreen and chapstick
- Sunglasses or goggles
- Gloves & Waterproof clothing
- Hat and scarf
- Extra socks
- Quarters for locker rental
- Completed Snow Sports Workbook & Blue Card for those working on the Merit Badge
- $20 for lunch
- We need to bring the Troop Flag
Payment needs to be made in full prior to the trip. Details to follow.
