    If you’re coming from Lethbridge – just hop on I-15 at Sweetgrass & roll South till you hit Helena. Jump off on 287 to Ashton, ID. Roll down through Driggs & over Teton Pass. The Park is closed to through traffic.

    Maybe some Bozo splitter would toss a couch out for ya for a 1/2-way crash spot. Then a guy could hit stuff along the way splittin into Scrubfest.

    Hey 2nd Canuck to partake in such adventures. Stoked to rock out with splitten brethren across the boarder!! :thatrocks:

    This being a very weather dependent trip, could someone provide a link for the weather forecast in the area?

    Cheers

    Don’t leave home without it. There are couloirs in them thar hills! Keep posted for a Scrub Conditions trip report! You don’t need rap gear, but bring the ax and poons. It is up to you what you want to ride! Check out Turiano’s book…all the beta you need. I definitely have my eye on a few lines this year.

    I can barrow a set of axes but don’t have any crampons. Would it be worth bring the axes? Thanks’ guys, looking forward to seeing some new terrain!

    I second this, I don’t have a ice axe or crampons, are we talking necessities or just a really good precautionary measure?

    You don’t have to have those tools at all. There are more than plenty of 800-5000 vertical foot shots that don’t require ax or poons. Personally, I want to ride steep and rowdy lines if conditions permit. Those lines do require ax and poons. I plan on riding a day with Tex and FullersOh2 and the line we are planning usually has ice partway through it.

    We will give you plenty of options for mellow terrain, medium terrain, hard terrain, and fuggin’ rowdy terrain. Go as big or little as you would like. There are options for all, but it is up to you as you are responsible for your ability and yourself. Some people just come to drink beer….wait, no they don’t.

    Should I bring the projector and computer again for people to watch trip reports or movies? Anyone have movies they would like to bring?

    I’m driving down from Bozeman on Thursday night. Treepilot, if our schedules overlap we can carpool. I’ll be headed back to Bozeman on Sunday afternoon.

    Yellowstone roads aren’t open in winter so you need to go through Idaho, over Teton Pass, then NE to Togwotee.

    Ok cool, thanks Wyomingsplit_ride. That answers my question perfectly.

    Since there are multiple types of lines to ride, I assume there will be groups hitting various terrain? Since I do not have axe or cramps as well I do not believe I will be able to handle the rowdy terrain.

    There is pretty much every time of terrain you can imagine and groups will form and split off each day.

    samH-Pieps wants to use one of your photos from last year as a plug for ScrubFest on their facebook page. Is this ok?

    jeri…
    haven’t been to scrubfest before but from previous years reports most touring is done around the togwotee pass area which isn’t the teton range. all of the touring in the tetons it is totally condition dependent as in general the tetons are a lot gnarly then the wasatch, and not a place you want to be when things are questionable. not to say there isn’t terrain you can’t ride on high/considerable danger days, but generally those aren’t the lines worth making the drive for.

    Just ordered a new Mammut beeper for the occasion to replace my old Ortovox F-1.

    There are many options in the Tetons and it is not all that far depending what you are looking for. You cannot go wrong between the pass and the park. All of the secrets are given up Tom Turiano’s book that I referenced in the first page. Soooooo many options. You cannot come to Wyoming and not ride in the Tetons. Even if it means hitting the resort in nip deep conditions.

    Togwotee was variable to very nice this weekend. Keep posted for a preview. :rock:

    Another FYI:
    As I was digging through my garage for gear, I unearthed a spare pair of snowshoes I don’t need and will sell. Great shoes that easily fit snowboard boots, used only a few times to walk the dog. MSR Denali Classics as at http://thurly.net/0wkt, except yellow. PM if interested, and I’ll bring them along to the Fest; otherwise, I’ll stick them on Craigslist when I get home.
