It's a one day trip but we will choose either Saturday or Sunday based on the weather forecast on Thursday. This will be a moderate level snowshoe trip. TOPO indicates ~ 9 miles and 2,300' of gain to the high point of Easton Ridge (Pt. 4517, east of Lake Easton). There's an optional bonus peak (Old Man's Nose, Pt. 4291) we could attempt on the return, which would add 300' of gain, perhaps an additional mile and a little steeper terrain. As always this time of year, snow and weather conditions may dictate a last minute change of plans.
