Porters do not serve as guides. They will not accompany you into the Frog Lake Huts. They are paid to carry a porter load (45lbs) into the huts and they move at the pace that they feel is appropriate for them given the load. In many cases they will arrive before you do and will leave your items in the hut that you reserved or your designated space in the refrigerator.
Porters will meet you on the morning of the first day of your trip to pick up your load. Meeting locations are typically at the Donner Summit California State Snopark (Castle Peak Trailhead) or at the Safeway on Donner Pass Road. Porters will weigh the load and will carry up to 45 pounds. If you would like the porter to carry additional weight, discuss this with them beforehand to make sure that they are able and comfortable to carry additional weight given the snow conditions. Weight beyond the 45 lb limit will be charged at $7/pound, payable in cash to the porter.
