This is a relatively short but scenic route and good for beginning scramblers. I am not sure of snow conditions; hopefully plenty left to make travel easy. Bring axe, helmet, pack your crampons just in case. Planned route is from Snow lake TH to the south ridge of Foss peak; descent the same way unless we feel adventurous and conditions are good. I will not have phone reception after Wed night. Might have internet but not sure. Look for my beige toyota SUV in the parking lot of Longmire with the mountaineers hiking bum license plate holder.
