South Renton Park and Ride at 6.00 AM

As always in my trips, please come prepared to Navigate. We will be moving at a brisk pace and we will be breaking trail as a team. Destination subject to change at the last minute on account of weather, snow, and avalanche conditions. 

Trip plan:

The plan is to do a loop trip, starting from the skii resort parking lot, after parking one car at the parking spot at NFD 7190. 

We will start with Bullion Basin Trail -> platinum peak- run the ridge to East peak and then to Norse peak and down the Norse Peak Trail  to where the single car is parked. Once down - the drivers will drive to the Ski resort trail head and drive back to pick us up on the way out

This will be a moderate to sternuous trip - please come prepared to navigate and break trail
