    There's no way to guarantee that there will be spots open. Know your alternatives (Cannon ski area, Skookumchuck, the Flume) and alternative routes to the peaks you want to hike.

    I don't think this is a case of both sides did some things wrong. IMO, it's pretty clear that one side instigated this fight, they lost, and they deserved to lose.

    We did a similar hike a few years back, skipping the first two days and then doubling up on a few near the end to finish the Alta Via 1. Amazing terrain, huts, and people.

    Recco is best used as a body recovery tool, allowing ski areas to reopen the terrain after an accident. By the time you get an helo to an accident scene you're in recovery mode.

    You can also use electronic rechargeable hand warmers that heat up in 10-15 seconds and last a few hours. They're a bit heavier than the disposables but I'm impressed with their robustness and speed.

    Well, in general, the Interwebs don't have many rules. VFTT, however, does. :)

    Is the snowpack in AK similar to the generally heavy snowpack here in the northeast? We rarely need lots of floatation here because the snow is generally pretty dense.

    The Dartmouth College Grant is just south and west of Wentworth Location, but it's gated except for approved users. But you're free to take a gravel or mountain bike and explore around. No big hikes...

    You're making a distinction that doesn't really exist. Anything over 26.2 is an ultra. Certainly, some races are longer than others, but they're all ultras.
