Backpacking & Backcountry Skiing Trip Preparation

These week long trips are physically difficult and require quite a bit of physical conditioning to get ready for them. This is what I do in a typical year:
Ride 1500 -2000 miles on my road bike
Hike 300 miles
Backpack 75-100 miles
Backcountry ski 50-75 miles
Swim 75 miles
Gym weight machines 150 times

Participants do not have to do this much, but you will have to work out a minimum of 4x per week for 3-4 months to get ready for these week long multi-day wilderness trips.

Previous Trips

See Previous Trips descriptions for my multiday wilderness trips.

For dayhikes wear hiking boots or hiking shoes and bring lunch, energy snacks, two quarts of water, raingear, extra clothes, sun block, sunglasses, insect repellent, map, compass, pocket knife, a small flashlight, and most importantly a positive attitude and a sense of humor - they will still work after everything else has failed.
