Ashway Park and Ride at top of I-5 and 405.  Meet at 6:00am.

Based on my trip up that way last weekend we should have a walk out of the parking lot from Artist Point to the end of Table Mountain.  Then we will begin to see snow on Ptarmagin Ridge, I expect a mixed snow/rock scramble to the top.  Off to the North there were some nice looking snow slopes that I would expect to be there this coming weekend.
