Highly Recommended Bootpacker Meeting and Gear Swap
When: Wednesday October 16, 2019
Location: Conference Room in the Locker Room Level at the base of Aspen Highlands (follow the signs).
Time: 11:00AM or 5:30PM
It is time to start preparing for the 2019-20 bootpacking season.
We have scheduled our annual meeting to inform everybody about the bootpacking program, sign releases, answer questions, and buy and sell gear at the swap. This meeting is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for all participants, even those who have participated in the past, as this is when the necessary waivers and releases are signed. We will make the meetings as short as possible as we understand everybody has a busy schedule.
Please sign up on the highlandspatrol.com web site to get your information entered into the bootpacker database for this season.
The Gear Swap
The Gear Swap is an opportunity for bootpackers to acquire some of the necessary gear at an affordable price. We understand that things get expensive quickly and do not want this to deprive anybody the chance to bootpack. Please come prepared to buy or sell bootpacking related gear such as avalanche transceivers, Vibram soled ski boots, warm clothes, backpacks, or anything else you think make one more comfortable when they are cold and tired. Affordable is the key word here, if your goal is to make lots of money this may not be the proper outlet, and again only bootpacking specific gear please, this is not a general ski swap. All gear to be sold at the swap should be dropped off by 10:00AM as it will have to be tagged to make sure you get your money at the end of the day. All gear that does not sell has to be picked up by 6:30pm or it will be donated to the packing program.
Thanks we look forward to seeing you on October 16, 2019.
