Join me for a day in the snow as we head up Pratt Mountain. We will hike the Pratt Lake trail to Olallie Lake then head uphill catching the SE ridge and taking that to the summit. We'll stay together the entire time.

Gear: Required Snowshoes, Ice Ax (though you may not even need to use the ax), and helmet. Microspikes and treking poles are optional, but may come in handy.
