Starting from the Kachess Lake sno-park, we will ski on FS 49 toward Kachess Lake campground. Just before reaching the campground, the road crosses Gale creek. At the entrance to the campground, we will turn left and follow FS 4948 along it's winding route up to where the road again crosses Gale Creek - roughly four miles beyond our first crossing, and 1,200' higher up on Keechelus Ridge. The group size can be expanded if additional carpooling resources are available.
