This is a very popular route, so we’ll meet and start a bit earlier than usual in hopes of beating the rush and getting decent parking places (no promises). This is an “E+” trip. Participants are required to have taken the “Basic Snowshoeing” course, or alternatively either “Alpine Scrambling” or “Basic Climbing”. Sno-Park permits are required for carpool vehicles.
Snow levels are low this year, but leader visited the area and saw snow on the road from the start, so should be fine.
Note that leader is somewhat pushing the limits of an E+ trip with this: we'll stay on the road insofar as that includes a n upper branch road. Thus we'll get to the lower Kendall lake (only), with virtually no avalanche risk.
