I really don't have a good idea of what the snow conditions are going to be like, but I was thinking of trip out I-90 Sat. Snow is scheduled to start mid-day sat, and then increase through the night and into Sunday. I was thinking trying to do the West Granite - Granite Mt loop. This is something I tried last year, but got turned around by really deep powder and bad snowshoes. I don't think that will be a problem this time.

Trail starts at the normal summer trailhead then progresses up toward Ollie lake, where we leave the trail and gain a ridge, which runs to a point called West Granite, a sub peak of Granite Mt. Depending on conditions we can return the way we came, or cross the saddle to Granite, and descend the south rib back to the trail head.

Temps look like they are going to be colder, and my guess is that the snow will be consolidated and potentially icy. Snowshoes may be necessary only for their traction.

I'm asking people to bring gear for winter conditions, as well as snowshoes and ice axes. Round trip will be ~10 miles with 3500ft of gain. If you are interested but unsure of your abilities, or have other questions post or PM me. Snowshoes and axes are available at the IMA.

Plan on leaving the Burke around 7am, this will be a full day trip.

I have a car with room for 3 other plus gear.

FYI - West Granite is also sometimes referred to as "Tusk o' Granite". I'm not sure if that makes it more or less alluring. Would love to come along, but am locked into dissertating.

I would be interested in going. I know how to use an ice axe, but it's been a while.

If anyone is interested that doesn't know how to use an axe, we can probably do some practice in route. There is nothing very technical about this trip, and axe newbies would be fine.
