This trip is intended for snowshoe leaders or potential snowshoe leaders within the Seattle Snowshoe group.  Others may sign up for any open spots beginning on 2/1/2016.  I reserve the right to cancel non-leaders off this trip prior to 2/1.

As with all winter adventures, weather and avalanche conditions are likely to prompt a change in destination.  With this trip, I will ask attendees to review weather and avi conditions closely, and to help determine an alternate destination if appropriate.
