Club news:

Great new people on trips!

Michael, Jennifer, Cara and Richard have all noticed how many new people have
been coming on trips, and how much fun everyone has been. Maybe it’s a
resurging economy, maybe it’s just fun people finding the club. Whatever it is,
we’re liking it!

Counterfeit Climbing Gear

Petzl just announced that there is some counterfeit Petzl climbing gear
counterfeit info. Make sure you buy your gear from authorized dealers!

Trivia contest!! Derek Wins!! – So Does Lana!

Derek knew that Ski Bradford has the lowest base elevation of any ski area in
the USA, with a summit elevation of 272 feet. We also accepted Alyeska resort
in Alaska, which is the lowest elevation of a “major resort” with a base
elevation of 250 feet. Lana was one of several people who guessed Alyeska, and
her name was selected at random from those names.

What are you doing this weekend?

Friday-Sunday: Intro to Backcountry Skiing/Snowboarding in Lassen National Park

Skip the crowds at the resorts and get out into the backcountry with the top
OAC guide. Perfect for a first backcountry trip, or for anyone wanting a guided
backcountry experience. If you can ski or ride on ungroomed intermediate slopes
at a resort, you can ride in the backcountry!

Friday-Sunday: Ski/Snowboard Weekend in Tahoe SOLD OUT-Waiting list only

Saturday: GET FIT! Hike in the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve

An easier hike, perfect to start getting in shape for summer!

Sunday: Hike Barnabe Peak in Samuel P. Taylor Park

Join us on this scenic 6-mile hike to a mountaintop vista in Marin.

Featured Trip of the Week:

Kayaking and Whale Watching at Davenport Landing

There are few sights more majestic and sublime than seeing a Grey Whale from
the cockpit of a kayak. You’re out in her backyard, close to the water in
stable tandem kayaks (singles available for more experienced paddlers). We have
spotters on the bluffs, helping guide us to the whales as they move up the
coastline, and great kayaking guides/instructors to help you get comfortable in
your boat.

You do not need to have a lot of paddling experience for this trip.

I’m ready- sign me up for:

Two Second Tip of the Week:

Backcountry skiers: If the skin side of your skins needs to be cleaned, use
Goof-Off. It will clean up anything stuck in the skins that are mucky.

Where were you last weekend?

On Sunday, Mike guided a hike to Mission Peak. The group saw some amazing views
of the bay, hang gliders in flight, and even some snow! We were stoked to see
some new faces on the hike- Bevin, Eunice, and Karsten were on their first OAC

On Monday, Mike guided the waterfall hike in Point Reyes. There was a lot of
water coming down Alamere Falls, even the feeder falls upstream Alamere Creek.
It was unusually spectacular. The group definitely had some fun trying to time
the tide right for pictures at the base of the falls. Lots of Buckeyes
blooming, a fair amount of wildflowers, and clear views of the Farallones.

Richard taught a sold out AIARE Level 1 avalanche course over the weekend. The
club, Bill, Tim and Jeanne! We had great conditions for the class, and
everyone learned how to make good decisions in the field. David took some cool
3D pictures, and the highlight of the class had to be predicting exactly where
to go to set off an avalanche, then doing it!

Another great group of people joined us at the Tahoe cabin this weekend for
some powder skiing and snowbording. Kun showed us all that The Snow Beast(her
Prius) is right at home driving through a storm! Thanks Kun, Steve, Nick, Ann,
Patton and everyone else for an awesome weekend.

Here’s a new trivia question. The winner gets a $50 gift card to Lombardi
Sports!

Question:
Many places in and around San Francisco are named after Portola. Who was
Portola and what was he famous for?

We select the winner from all the correct entries submitted by OAC members.
if they are correct.

The winner receives a $50 gift card from Lombardi Sports!

Have a great weekend, and make it count!
