(To be completed by all group members before the trip)

While the NoLo Site is neither on nor below known avalanche terrain, the route to the NoLo Office passes under known avalanche paths. 

Colorado is known for its avalanche prone snowpack. Accordingly, carry appropriate equipment and always exercise prudent backcountry travel techniques when passing through avalanche prone terrain. Remember, avalanches can occur in forested areas and can run into forested areas from open slopes. 

We strongly suggest that someone in every group be experienced in evaluating avalanche and snow stability hazards and practicing prudent backcountry and winter mountain travel techniques. For up to date avalanche information for all of Colorado, visit the website for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC). Another excellent resource is the Forest Service National Avalanche Center website. While these sites don’t have local forecasts they do have a wealth of information on backcountry travel in avalanche terrain and snow science, as well as tutorials on some basic skills and snow science.

We recommend that you start checking the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) Website regularly before your trip to see how conditions are evolving. If your trip falls within a period or cycle of high or extreme instability, you must make the decision of whether or not to go. The NoLo Office is not closed for avalanche hazard reasons. Deep snow, bad weather, and white-out conditions are to be anticipated on any trip. If you make the decision to cancel, a hut credit will be issued. Please send us an email if you wish to cancel.

Current reservations are visible on this calendar - check to see if your desired dates are available.
