Note: this is a Friday trip. We will only head to Wright if the avy conditions are very good. Otherwise, we will aim for Snoqualmie East, with the option of doing Guye instead. That is unless the weather is miserable at the pass, in which case we'll head farther east. The approach to Wright Mt involves crossing Snow Lake. Please do not sign up for this trip if you are adverse to crossing frozen lakes in winter. Snowshoes with aggressive crampons, such as MSR brand, required. Microspikes or crampons required. Avy beacons, shovels, and probes recommended.
