Write Up:
16 people showed up and we had no problems getting up to the Red Heather hut. Scott MacPherson and Mark Miller were an amazing resource as this was a big group. We skinned up to the ridge and Scott broke off with a more beginner group. From there we did our first run and at the base skintrack Mark broke off to help Scott. For the rest of the day we were 8 intermediate skiers and 6 new skiers with Scott and Mark. We finished up by 3pm at Red Heather hut and skied back to the trail head.
