We'll do  a loop up the main Si trail, over to Teneriffe  via the Si-Teneriffe connector and back down to the trailhead via Talus Loop. There is still currently a little snow/ice heading up the main Si trail and lots of snow on the Si-Teneriffe connector and the Mount Teneriffe  trail. Bring micro spikes and poles. If  conditions are sketchy, we'll stick with an out-and-back on the main trail.
