Men's Winter Expedition
February 23 . 24, 2019 (time not set)
the objective: Winter camp above Paradise (5400 ft) on Mt Rainier
Feb 23 & 24
Grab the snowshoes or back country skis and winter gear. We'll meet at SWAG at 6:00 AM on Saturday morning and arrive back late on Sunday. (approx. 3 hours from the other side of ferry)
The plan is to establish a winter camp in the Glacier Vista area above Paradise on Mt Rainier. Round trip approx. 3 miles and 1000' of elevation. Bring the camera - if the weather is clear - the view is amazing - including the Tatoosh Range, the Goat Rocks and Mt. Adams.
Everyone is on their own for food and we'll all pitch in for travel expenses.
Don't hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions.
This trip is subject to favorable weather/avalanche report.
Email me to reserve your spot and let me know if you have a vehicle that you would be willing to drive and if you have a 3+ season tent. dareld at swagchurch dot com
