7:45am at Issaquah Transit Center, drivers will all need groomed SnoPark permits, passengers will all need to contribute $$ towards this. 

From the SnoPark, we will aim to get a somewhat early start, in order to beat the majority of snowmobilers on the P2C trail, heading SE.  We will aim to check out the Whittier Tunnel, take some dogsled trail loops, and if group energy and snow conditions allow, head as far as Meany Lodge, for an "inside" lunch option.  Please bring all you need for lunch, snacks, water, hot beverages, as we won't have paid for them, and they don't expect us either.  

For details of the area, please see the attached map:

For this trip, classic skis only, ideally with some width to them given large volume of new snow.  Sorry skaters!  Leader has 65mm skis with metal edges.
