Yosemite Winter Club Cross Country Skiers
This year we will have the food and cache packing work party on September 24th at the home of Mark and Betsy Blum near Coarsegold (address and contact info below). We will be purchasing and packing food for two Glacier Point trips, a Trans-Sierra trip, a Tuolumne Turnaround trip, and the Ostrander trip.
We will also need volunteers to take the caches to their appointed storage locations:
We will provide the needed contact numbers for coordination with NPS rangers and Minarets PS.
We generally get started with orientation for food packing at 9 a.m. on Saturday. There will be breakfast, so come early have a snack before we start. The club will also provide lunch. The food packing involves taking inventory of food left from last year that can be used, shopping for needed food in Oakhurst, return to the Blums and pack the cache containers. Teams are assigned to each trip.
If you are coming from a distance you can stay the night at the Blums – there is some space inside but bring camping gear in case.
Please let us know if you can help out (our emails are shown), either with food shopping/packing or with cache deliveries.

We hope everyone is having a good summer, and have our fingers crossed for a good winter with snow in the high country.
