7:00 AM at Issaquah Transit Center Park and Ride
This is the make-up trip for the one I had to cancel on the 13th. I will try to keep my bicycle wheels away from the icy streets in the future!

Meet inside the Issquah Transit Center parking garage on the first floor in the Northeast corner at 7:00 AM. We will consolidate cars there. Seattle folks should use the club website to arrange carpools to Issaquah.
Call me at 7:00 AM on my cell phone at 425-442-6411 if you are running late or will not be able to come.

- Ice Axe.
- Snowshoes. You must have a pair with agressive points on the bottom such as MSR.
- Avalanche Becon. Not required, but I strongly recommended that you have one and know how to use it.
- Avalanche shovel and/or probe. We should have 3 of each for the group. Please bring one or both if you can
- Crampons. They will probably NOT be required. However, if we have a big rain/freeze cycle, then they might be. In that case, I will notify everybody of the change.

From the main Alpental Ski Area parking lot we will hike the route of the summer trail to Snow Lake. We will snowshoe across the middle of Snow Lake, then up to Wright Mountain at the north end of the lake.
