Wondering if Bruce's camera survived the sauna... Probably not suitable for a family forum.

Snowshoe going up, the whole way. On the way down, snowboard/hiked for the first probably 2-3 miles, then switched and snowshoed uphill probably 2 miles, then snowboarded down the slopes at Copper from about mid-mountain. Everyone else in our group had skis, so they were swapping skins while I was strapping the other to my backpack.

ok - had me worried about your sanity... My good bud does a section of the hut system every year... as if that wasn't enough, he's also a telemarker....I would really like to do a snow camp this year, it's been twenty years, but I think I can still recall how...

I love winter, that looks like so much fun. Never been on a hut/yurt trip, but would like to go sometime. Would also like to get more backcountry action in on my tele skis.

Glad to see you guys had a good time!

Aside from the walk in looks like you had a very good time. So how hot does the sauna get?

Looks like fun. Tim, you need to get yourself a split board.

I bet we had that Sauna up to 150-160F.. the thermometer inside was broken but if you sat on the top bench for more than about 5-10 minutes you started to get a little woozy... but then we ran outside and jumped in the snow, then ran back inside.. repeat.

Yeah Martin either a split board or just get backcountry skis, definitely want to get more into this more in a few years once we're done with our last round of babiness. Until then I'll just grunt it out old school...

I can totally relate to that statement - it's my hips that suffer the most. I usually hike with skinned tele skis, and I swear by the end of the ascent I feel like those skis weigh 50lbs a piece.

Thanks for the trip report! There's something very unique about trekking into the woods in the middle of winter with no lifeline other than turning around and trying to head home. Sounds like a good group and a fun trip.
