Greetings Boot Packers,
We will have an informal meeting for all current and future boot packers on Thursday November 2, 2023 in the Plaza at the base of Aspen Highlands at 3 pm to 5 pm.
The boot packing program will run the same as last year. This meeting is primarily for people who have not boot packed before, and want to learn how it all works. We will give an overview of the program and be available to answer any specific questions.
Signing up for the program is all online (click on the BOOTPACKING tab above). The waivers are also online.
Returning boot packers are certainly welcome to attend. It is always great to gather as we get ready for another season of boot packing, you will be able to offer a different perspective to the aspiring boot packers.
As the returning bootpackers all know, the exact start date of bootpacking is yet to be determined. It always depends on the snow. We have had two storms so far this month and another storm is expected next week. There is currently about ten inches of snow in the Northwoods study plot. We need more snow in order to start bootpacking but we are getting close.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday November 2, 2023 in the Plaza at the base of Highlands. We will post on this website when we have the exact start date for bootpacking. So stay tuned and check back when it snows again.
