February 6th, 2010: Twelve Strong to Ostrander

JonnyB scooped us up bright and early to meet up with the rest of the Bay Area crew he had assembled for the second leg of our adventure: a nine mile ski to the Ostrander Ski Hut. The first half is on a groomed trail from the Yosemite ski resort, Badger Pass. The junk show witnessed above took place before we turned off of the groomed trail. Among other things, hot spots are being tended to, skis are being waxed, food gathered, boots adjusted... What a scene.

The ski in was accompanied by a beautiful snowfall, which we would reap the benefits of over the course of the weekend. With time in mind, the group got an early start and made it to the hut well before nightfall for the first time in three years.
