The meetup will appear full for manual control - add yourself to waiting list, and I'll pull you in depending on fit for mountain/team.
1. This is not a technical climb, but a physically demanding hike and scramble
Our typical hikes are around 8-10 miles round trip,[masked] feet elevation gain, and mixed terrain scramble to a peak.
2. Required list of equipment
Snowshoes (MSR or similar which have side traction)
Crampons (not needed)
You must be prepared enough to stay overnight in winter incase of emergency. For a full list of equipment: see
3. Time - keep full day free. Be ready to go for dinner after hike
4. Hiking speed - I go at a very slow pace - If u are faster, u have to slow down or carry more weight.
5. Carpool -
As per peak's policy, carpool cost is $0.50 per mile divided to each occupant (incl driver). $.50 per mile was taken from the older IRS mileage rate (gas + maintenance).
However, it is simpler if everyone knows upfront what they have to each pay. Hence, for this event, we will pay a flat rate for the common destinations:
• 5$ to North Bend area
• 10$ to Snoqualmie Pass area
• 20$ to Cle elum, Stevens pass, mountain loop (lower) area
• 25$ to Teanaway/Blewett pass, North Casacades, Rainer area
Flat rate for fuel efficient vehicles,is 5 $ less than the above.
(Flat rate is calculated at 50c per mile with 4 occupants (incl. drver) from eastgate P&R. Many trips have less than 4 occupants - in these cases, you don't pay more, but in return, when there are more than 4 occupants, the driver gets some chance to break even. )
All participants must have a Waiver on file. If your title does not have a * or, has a w*, then u don't have a waiver with Peaks. You should print/sign and bring this waiver with you.
