The bowls of Mineral King have been coveted for commercial development for years. Now is a chance to visit them and their accompanying peaks for great spring skiing. Stay in Silver City (make your own arrangements) and do day trips on one or more days over this long Memorial Day weekend. See Paul Richins book Ski and Snowboard Summits for details on skiing Florence, Vandever and Sawtooth.

Intermediate skiing skills required for bowl skiing. Peak-bagging is likely to require advanced skiing skills on more difficult terrain.

Tioga Pass area. Open to all skill levels. Saturday: ice axe & crampon training & practice in a controlled environment on the Dana Glacier, which is a couple miles cross country from Tioga Pass. Previous ice axe & crampon experience is not required, but if you're new to these tools, you should do some reading first. "Freedom of the Hills" is the mountaineering bible. Sunday: climb nearby Mt Warren (12327', class 2) and Lee Vining Pk (11691', class 2), which should have outstanding views down to Mono Lake. Maybe we'll get lucky and see some bighorn sheep.
