We can accommodate either skiers of snowshoers on this trip, taking advantage of the recent dump of fresh snow to examine a historical weather station with local weather monitor and expert Cliff Mass. The snowshoe route is shorter and the time in should be about the same. Skiing out is clearly faster than snowshoeing out. Bring lunch, snow pants and gaiters as well as snacks and water. Cliff expects the weather to be fine for the trip. I hope you can join us for this rare opportunity.
