Any kind of skis is fine, or none at all for those who have not been bitten by the ski bug. Climbing skins may be used if the snow is too soft to walk. Contact leader about lodging. Can be done as a day trip from BA.

Koip Peak Ski Mountaineering

Koip Peak from the east

Climb Koip Peak from the east and ski down it. Requires excellent physical condition, advanced skiing skills, avalanche training, snow camping, Randonee or Telemark skis, climbing skis, ski crampons, avalanche beacon, shovel, and probe.  This is a phenomenal ski descent under good conditions – 5000 feet vertical.  Of course, that means a big fast climb is needed to get up as well as down the peak in a day.  The recently published guide to skiing the eastern Sierra has great photos.  Richins guide has a good description.
