Greetings Boot Packers,
Boot Packing will begin on Monday, November 6th 2023.
All boot packers are invited to show up at the base of Aspen Highlands and be ready to go by 8 am.
Please arrive in plenty of time to get checked in and have your gear ready to go up the lift at 8 am.
Check in will be at the bottom of the escalators in the Aspen Highlands base area.
We plan to boot pack on Monday, November 6th and Tuesday, November 7th. These will be the only two days of boot packing for next week. (The ski patrol will be doing our annual medical training the other days).
Boot packers will need skis and/or snowboards to get to and from the areas of boot packing. Bring plenty and food and water to spend the day in the field. As always, rubber soled boots are required for boot packing.
We are still planning to have an informal meeting tomorrow, Thursday, November 2nd in the Plaza at the base of Aspen Highlands from 3pm to 5 pm. This meeting is primarily for people who have not boot packed before. We will give an overview of the boot packing program and we will be available to answer any questions potential boot packers may have.
The meeting tomorrow is not required. We hope to see everyone on Monday morning, (Reminder: daylight saving time ends this weekend.)
