If the ski area is closed we will be using the ski slopes so we will park in the lower parking lot of the ski area (first right turn into the ski area when coming from Seattle). If the ski area is not closed we will be using the area West of the lake on Skyline Ridge. That parking area will be the first left into the day parking area for the ski lodge on the north side of highway 2.

More exact details will be available 3 days before the field Trip.

This field trip will take place in the Stevens Pass ski area.

We will practice walking in balance, ascending / descending with the aid of an ice axe, self -arrest and glissading

Required Equipment

All required scramble equipment

At least 2 extra pair of gloves - your hands will be in the snow a lot.

Ice Axe and helmet is a MUST. Waterproof pants are vital.  It is best to wear old rain gear during the self arrest portion of the FT to save wear and tear on your expensive jackets and pants.

 Please bring dry clothes to change into in your car.
