Had Carne Mountain listed this Sunday but was concerned about the snow level on the road.  So changing to Cutthroat Pass.  There is a lot of snow out there but with the number of people that hike this trail I am sure it will be packed down and much safer.  Last ditch hike before I start listing ski trips I guess.  I will send updated information via email first thing tomorrow with where to meet and what time.
