The trip is intended in the first line for snow shoe leaders and prospective leaders (who can simply email me at and I'll sign you up) but others are welcome to sign up starting 1/4/2015.  Depending on snow conditions we may approach via Golden Gate and circle back via the conventional approach to Mazama Ridge, or just run it out and back from Mazama Ridge.  As usual in winter, foul weather could force a late change in plans
