OUTINGS


Since 1989, Boulder-White Clouds Council has hosted a summer outings program. Sometimes we lead hikes and field trips in other months. All events are no-charge and led by volunteers. We do accept donations to help defray program costs. Trips go into the Boulders, White Clouds, Sawtooths, Smokeys, Pioneer and Salmon River Mountains. Please share a day with us afield, and then join our efforts to secure unprotected areas within the National Wilderness Preservation System. Email us for the latest schedule of events.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR A GREAT DAY AFIELD - Come prepared for any type of weather. Ridgetop climate can be mighty cold even in summer. Bring lunch, plenty of water, insect repellent and sunscreen. Wear sturdy footwear. If you have to return early, please drive your own vehicle. Please share fuel expense with people who drive. Carpooling efforts will be made from Ketchum, Stanley and Challis. Please, no dogs, although we have made exceptions.

A WORD ON TIRES Ė We encourage you to equip your vehicle with tires designed for rough, backcountry roads and this will help you to avoid flats. New SUVís often do not come with tires capable of handling our washboard or rock-strewn roads. Please seek advice from a tire dealer on whether your tires are truly backcountry tough. We have three outings in summer 2008 that are accessed via moderately rough roads: Basin Butte Lookout, Bear Valley and Thunder & Lightning Lakes.

Boulder-White Clouds Council, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible. Our federal tax I.D. Number is 82-0433602. Please make a donation to help defray the cost of this program!
