Indoor rock climbing instead of snowshoeing

Due to the Avalanche danger and the stormy forecast I have decided to cancel the snowshoe and repost at a later date... below is our new plan... The link has more info..

 

 They do a one-hour intro class for $35. That includes gear rental, and a pass to  keep climbing. http://warehouserockgym.com/

If you are interested RSVP yes and then call the gym and let them know you are coming or if you RSVP before 5:30pm, Stephanie will do it for you...

 You pay when you get there.... Let them know you are with the meet up... It's the noon class and first come first serve.

 We can meet up at Dancing Goats for coffee and a snack and then head over to the rock climbing gym...

Also... what to wear according to the gym:Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move freely. Avoid very short shorts, which tend to bunch up above the leg loops when you climb. People with long hair should bring an elastic band to tie it up, since it can be a safety hazard if it is long enough to fall into the belay device. It is also a good idea to bring a water bottle, though we also have a drinking fountain.

    I was not signed up for the snowshoe trip, but I think you are very smart to change the destination. The avalanche risk is extremely high right now.

    Hello all,

    Lorri asked me to post this because she's working late and wanted to get this discussion started ASAP. The NW avalanche center has some pretty high level warnings for avalanches caused by snow slab and wind slab, getting worse tomorrow and peaking overnight Sunday-Monday. There's a thick, heavy, moist layer of snow on top of a cold layer of dry snow, making conditions ideal for avalanches. http://www.nwac.us/avalanche-forecast/current/cascade-east-snoqualmie-to-white-pass/

    The risks are especially high near and above treeline. Looking at the topo maps and this trail description, it looks like this trail travels near treeline for a significant portion of the trail. http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/seasonal-hikes/hikes/sand-lake-snowshoe

    Has anyone done this as a hike or snowshoe before? Thoughts?
