Other Info

Vermillion Valley Resort will hold packages for you (for a fee of $20). UPS is the preferred method. Send your package at least 2 weeks in advance. USPS is not as convenient for them so please use UPS. It will take at least 2 weeks regardless of method.

There is a 25 lbs (11 kg) limit on all packages. Be sure to mark your package(s) with your estimated time of arrival (ETA). All packages will be held 30 days past ETA, then put in the hiker box. Note: the hiker boxes are packed after the north bound pack goes through. Mail to the address above. Be sure to read about mailing options (see link below).

NOTE: The listed UPS address will not appear in the UPS computer -- so it must be overridden by UPS. It's not a problem, it's just something you should be aware of so you aren't surprised when the UPS employee says "that address isn't in the computer". :)
