Meet at the Longmire gate at 8:30 AM to prepare to enter the gate as soon as they open it (typically 9 AM). We will get to paradise and head out into the snow. That's our classroom today!

Please have you pack totally packed before coming. Be as ready as possible to start hiking as soon as possible.

That's our classroom for the day. We plan to get done at 1:30 PM with the trip. But that could go a bit later. Don't hold me to that. 

We'll be hands on considering and experiencing everything we've talked about and demonstrated in class.

Email to come out with several notes, instructions, etc. It's crucial that you make time read that before coming.
