    Knee is hurting after a morning on the snow, I may still come out if it feels better.

    I do not expect the group to stay together. We will gather at the Summit and I will at least wait till the last person is off the trail.

    Prefer to drive directly to Trailhead. Can pick up at 69St. W. LRT station if someone needs a ride

    In current conditions with the snow, I would like to get to the top in about 1.5 hrs. That's the slow end, I plan on about 1 hr.

    I did this last week, took me just over an hour to get to the top... If you are going faster than that please let me know!
