8:30am at the Smith Brook Road parking area.  If coming from the Puget Sound lowlands, drive east to the Stevens Pass Nordic Center and use the U-turn access to return westbound to the parking area.

I anticipate that I will already be up at the pass, so will meet you all there at 8:30am.

On this trip we will be testing out this route to find out whether it is suitably rewarding, or just a lot of hard work.  The Nason Ridge Trail reaches our high point, but we will likely choose to find our own route up the ridge.  It should be a challenging day!

While the route appears to be generally low-risk, please do bring your avy gear (beacon, probe and shovel) if you have them.

Ice axe is required equipment for this trip.

Please note that Backcountry Snowshoe Students are not eligible for this trip, unless they have completed the course field trip, or are Alpine Scramble or Basic Climb grads.  If you are signed up to take the Backcountry Snowshoe course this winter, you have not received instruction for skills that may be required on this trip.
