This hike is part of the Winter Conditioning Hike Series hosted by the Foothills Branch.  It is not part of a course or program.  Like any other open hike, it is open to all Mountaineers members!

We'll start at the new Teneriffe trail, and then take the Connector trail to Mt Si.   We'll either return the same route, or make a loop going down Si, cutting over on the Talus Loop trail,  and back to the Teneriffe TH.    NOTE:  Our route will  not go to the Mount Teneriffe summit.

Please be very comfortable traveling on snow!  Also be flexible regarding our route.  If conditions  are such that snowshoes become more appropriate for travel, we will  revise our route, or turn back.

The pace will be moderate.  Please be capable of hiking on a fairly steep grade, on snow, at a steady moderate pace.

 POLES and MICROSPIKES (no yaktraxs) are required!
