Anyways, my understanding of the difficulty--this from talking with a friend who's done it, reading a guidebook (hint, hint) and having hiked it in the summer--is that it's a difficult ski in (based on a grading system of easy/moderate/difficult). To tax my memory (so I might be a little off) It's a little over 6 miles from the road with about 1,600' of gain, with some long downhill stretches, both on open slopes and in the trees. Plus, you'll be skiing with an overnight pack. Do the math and figure whether you're up for it.

However, Now that means packing Ski's+Boots+Snowboard+boots+SnowShoes + all the other gear I'm gonna need ??????? What do I do???
