Death Valley to Telescope Peak

Allow me to say I'm just green with envy on this one—a group of skiers (or perhaps more accurately, madmen) hiked from Badwater Basin, Death Valley, elevation -282, to the summit of Telescope Peak, 11,049, some 20 miles of rough country away, skied the peak, and hiked back down. My favorite part of the Trip Report: when they're 20 hours overdue, and they decline a ride from a concerned ranger back to their car, still some nine miles away!
