Backpacking the Sierra to Mt. Whitney – REI Salt Lake City

January 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for an inspirational and informative talk on Backpacking the Sierra to Mt. Whitney at REI Salt Lake City.

Co-founder of the Trans-Sierra Xtreme Challenge, Chris Casado is passionate about exploring the Sierra. He’s spent countless summers camping in secluded lakes basins, crossing high alpine passes, following rushing rivers, and climbing majestic peaks. Join Chris for a digital presentation of his favorite trans-Sierra adventure, a week-long 75-mile journey across remote sections of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks to the summit of Mt. Whitney (14,505 feet). Learn the nuts and bolts of planning a multi-day backcountry trek, including gear, permits, weather and safety considerations, Leave No Trace principles, and protecting your food from bears. Find out tips for making a wilderness adventure of this magnitude a rewarding experience for all ages.
