    Phil:

    What kind of equipment did you use? Telemark or Cross-Country? For this trip is one preferable to the other?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I probably used Madshus Epochs with G3 Targa telemark bindings. It can be done with XC gear, but I prefer a light or medium-weight tele setup, especially if you’re going to do Whale’s Tale as well.

    When i go to avalanche pass I take my skis off and hike up the hiking trail. This way you would never be in the way of a skier coming back down the ski trail
