We will arrive at the Badger Pass trailhead Thursday morning at around 9:30am then get our permits at the backcountry office at the Badger Pass ski area and ski 11 miles to camp at Glacier Point. We will stay one night then return to the cars on Friday.
Glacier Point Road is groomed trail so the skiing is fast. I don't recommend doing 11 miles on snowshoes so plan accordingly.
IF YOU STILL HAVE ENERGY, WE COULD ALWAYS MAKE RESERVATION AT Davison Street Guest House http://www.mammoth-guest.com/ Only $ 35.40 per night. Then you could enjoy ski/snowboarding at mammoth for the following weekend? Let me know ahead the time please!
TPO file if you have TOPO! software
