0730 outside Forest Service Recreation Center / Summit west.  Exit 52 at Snoqualmie Pass.  Should be parking in the lower parking lots for Summit West ski area at that time.

Parking can be tough here when the ski area is open, so we'll get moving before then I hope. Moderate tour with some steeper portions through treed area without significant avalanche danger.  Ice Axe optional.
