This 1-day outing is an opportunity to practice on snow slopes with ice axe and crampons near Carson Pass on Hwy 88. We will also attempt Red Lake Peak if time and energies permit.
No experience is required, but all participants must have their own equipment. Be prepared for spending the full day on the snow, including sitting and sliding. This means appropriate boots, waterproof layers and warm clothing. If the snow is not sufficiently consolidated, the trip will be re-scheduled for a later date.
Meet at 9am at the Meiss Meadow sno-park which is just west of the Carson Pass Sno-Park on Highway-88. We depart at 9.30am.
To park there you will need a sno-park permit.
