NOTE: Little Cottonwood Canyon (Alta/Snowbird) Park & Ride!!! Just to let everyone get their fill of the Banff Film Festival, this hike is scheduled for FRIDAY NIGHT. We will meet at the Park & Ride at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon at 6:00 and carpool to the upper parking lot of Alta Ski Resort. We will hike to Cecret Lake. This will be about a 4-mile round trip hike with an elevation gain of about 1000 feet. Dress in layers. The majority of this hike will be on packed ski runs, so Yaktrax or Microspikes will probably work unless it snows (which is in the forecast). Snowshoes are a safe bet. Dress in layers and bring a light because there will not be a big moon in the sky.
I currently do not have a location figured out for the after-hike socializing. I will add more information about this later. If we can't find a location near the base of the canyon, we might meet at Porcupine or Hoppers.
