8:00 AM at Norse Peak TH
This is a good first scramble for students who have done the snow field trip, but graduates are welcome. We'll take time to do some self-arrest practice. This will be a one-way trip from the Norse Peak TH, which is about 4.2 miles up Crystal Mountain Road, over Norse Peak and down to the ski area, so we'll do a car shuttle. We'll see what the weather is like during the last 2 weeks of April, but it looks like we will need snowshoes for this trip.
