Destination subject to change due to weather, snow conditions, and avalanche conditions. We'll head to Surprise Lake and Glacier Lake. We will only venture beyond Glacier Lake if the avalanche danger is low. The snowshoe up the picturesque valley to the two lakes is one of my favorite winter trips.
