Details


Take a W side approach via Humbug Gulch enjoying the stunning scenery. (Unlikely we might do a loop and return via Mayflower Gulch to the cars, this will only happen if we have limited trail breaking to do on the way up to Crystal).

Depending on recent snowfall, we may have to break trail. Everyone will rotate trail breaking. Depending on snow depth, some may be up front shorter or longer than others.

If for any reason you need to cancel or contact me after 3pm on the day prior to the hike, please call or txt to inform me. I will not get notification from the CMC that you have cancelled and the parking lot leader will be waiting for you in the morning.

An e mail with final details will be sent out the day prior to the hike. Please check your Junk mail if you do not see the e mail in your In Box. If you have chosen to opt out of notifications from the CMC, please alter this setting as you will not receive e mails from hike leaders.

Dress for Winter weather in the mountains. Snow shoes and an ice axe are a MUST, microspikes are recommended know how you are going to attach them to your pack, should we need to carry them at times.
