Wing Ridge Hut Weekend

This past weekend the EOU Outdoor Program, through a group of staff, students and alumni, took part in the first of what will become an Annual Wing Ridge Work/Trade Weekend.

The EOU crew connected with staff from Wing Ridge Ski Tours early on Saturday morning at the Salt Creek Summit, outside of the town of Joseph. The Wallowa Mountains had just received an early season snowfall and provided an epic backdrop for our drive and hike in to the Wing Ridge hut. Once at the site we got to work, splitting and stacking wood, setting up tents, and generally getting ready for the winter season.

We had a great weekend in the high country and the participants from EOU are already looking forward to the trade part of the work/trade weekend (2 free hut nights during the ski season). Thanks to all those who took part and special mention to Trent Manns who documented the weekend with his camera.
