Will meet at the PCT trailhead at exit 52 off I-90 at 8 AM. Those wanting to carpool can meet at Preston Park and Ride, exit 22 at 7:15 AM. If you want another Park and Ride we can try to e-mail the group.

Suitable for those students that have completed the snow FT. Others may sign up as well. Hopefully we will encounter enough snow to practice skills and count for a snow scramble. Usually I take the shortcut up Commonwealth Basin to cut out part of the PCT.

Please let me know by e-mail if you would like to carpool from Preston, or if you need another Park and Ride. Sometimes we can match you up with the right people.

Today, April 10, just did Mt. Dickerman as a fast hike. There was quite a bit of snow and the leader required Microspikes (not just Yaktracs) I decided to require all participants for Kendall to bring either Microspikes or similar with triangles for gripping, or crampons (I would recommend the simple aluminum type that adjust to all boots for a first pair).

One year we did turn around because people could not grip the steep snow. I am thinking the snow falling this weekend could get icy during the following week.
