My goals for the trip are as follows:

1. Be safe.

2. Have fun.

3. Practice winter snowshoe skills.

4. Be comfortable in the snow.

5. Snowshoe up into the basin, possibly higher up the ridge if conditions permit.


My expectations for participants are as follows:

1. Have the necessary gear to be safe and comfortable and know how to use it.

2.  Participate in group discussions and decision-making regarding traveling in avalanche terrain.

3. Voice any concerns about snow/avalanche conditions.

4. Be at least reasonably physically fit.

5. Be open to learning.


My Style:

1. I love puns and jokes and riddles and words.

2. I am easily distracted by nature.

3. I like a good workout but I also like to have a good time.

4. I sometimes take a bit to respond because I'm mulling over my response. If I don't respond to you right away it's because I'm thinking about your question or comment.

5. I'm curious about people, so I may ask you questions about yourself.

6. I enjoy telling stories.

7. My leadership style is flexible, usually it's fairly relaxed. I'm also a big believer in servant leadership.
