Hey there Tex and Gang,

Have you narrowed this down as to a few possible weekends or are you keepin er open?

If your zero'n in on some dates, which ones and whats the ideal airport to fly into from CowTown, Canuckistan?

Depending on the weekend whippin down there on a Friday morning and heading back Monday night would be pretty B.A. Barakas.

Thank you... Thank you very much....
Slim

Hi Slim

So far we a re keeping it open, happening sometime between Mid-june to Mid-july. It will be based on when the road to the Brewer trailhead melts out. We are shying away from the 4th of july but with it being Mid-wek I dont know how that will come into play.
I email Robin ( telewoman on TTips.com ) , she lives up there and knows the road situation. She said its a typical year so most likely first part of July

I realize thats tough on buying airfare but as soon as we know we will post up and I will email you. You could fly into San Fransico and ride 5 hours north ( plenty of carpools) or Portland and go south 9 should be somebody to give you a ride )

If you dont want a long drive and have more cash, Redding California is the closest. Sacramento is also do-able with a bit less of a drive from SF but not much

Also, we wont be doing the standard avalanche gulch route but the Hotlum-Winton route. Pretty straitforward. But, if you are a climber and need more "spice' you can drift about 1/2 mile to the left and do the Hotlum glacier. That will require full Glacier travel protocall. With crevases and seracs and ice falls


Go ahead and plan on it, we can get you here

Unless the timing works out terribly I'll be driving up from Berkeley (which is bartable from the airport). Happy to take a crew up in my Jeep. Room for 3 passengers and gear. For those flying in, get in touch when dates are set.

Depending on the dates as well and if I can attend, I would have room in my SUV for a few as well coming from SF/SV

Medford is by far going to be the cheaper airport option for people looking. It's much bigger and has way more flights coming and going then Redding. Shasta is roughly 1 1/4 hours from either place, though if one was 10 minutes longer it's probably medford.

I may be at my Ashland office during that time (since no date has been set I can't promise yet), and if so, I could easily pick somebody up at the Medford Airport and take them down.

Hey guys, we still thinking about doing something via Brewer Creek? Like when the road goes all the way, or just far enough to skin up the Creek???

I think I have time weekend of June 15 to spend a few days up on the Shizzy.

More stoke as the corn fest goes on. We rode West Face: 4000 feet of fun! Great weekend in Hidden Valley. Awesome sunset. Middle pic shows the cloud top that locked the summit up but made for a great sunset.

Totally looking forward to it. Brewer Creek is pretty much heaven on earth.

Here's some stoke from this weekend. The corn was ripe.
