As with all winter trips, weather and avalanche conditions will determine the trip status.  The plan is be a hurricane ridge around 2:30-3:00 and start our trek up the ridge and to arrive before slightly before sunset.  Enjoy lunch and take pictures of the sunset and views under the full moon.  1 hour after sunset, will depart back to the vehicles.  Which should put us back to vehicles around 7:30 pm. 

For your safety and the safety of group, you will be required to have a glow stick that you affix your pack, in addition to the headlamp and back-up flash light and extra batteries for both.
