Sawtooth Ridge Ski Tour itinerary

Day 1
We meet in the town of Bridgeport at 9:00am and after a pack check and gear discussion we drive a short distance to the Twin Lakes trailhead. The rest of the day is spent skiing up the Robinson Creek drainage to Little Slide Canyon to establish a camp.

Day 2
Today we ski under the imposing granite face of the Incredible Hulk and the many granite spires of Little Slide Canyon. After crossing into Yosemite National Park we cross back onto the East side of the Sierra via Glacier Col establish a camp on the West side of the Sierra Crest near Glacier Lake.

Day 3
Today may have time in the morning for a quick ski descent under Blacksmith Peak. After crossing through Cleaver Col we descend across the Sawtooth Glacier to a camp at the base of Matterhorn Peak, sampling some couloir skiing along the way.

Day 4
After an early start we will boot up the East Couloir of Matterhorn Peak with light packs before skiing back to camp and enjoying the fine descent down Horse Creek Canyon back to the trailhead, a 5,000 ft descent.
