Hoping to get out for a brief snowshoe hike this Saturday since the forecasted ice crust does not make skiing sound particular appealing, nor does all the fresh snow make peak bagging sound particularly appealing.

Barring other outstanding suggestions, the thought would be to head up to Mountain Loop and take a walk up Mt. Dickerman. The route is 8.6 miles RT, with about 3500' of gain. Opportunities abound to practice ice axe self arrest on the upper slopes without grave consequences.

Required gear: snowshoes, ice axe

Departure: 0630 from Seattle
Return: Late afternoon

I'll be driving and can take two others in addition to Michelle and I. Post or PM if interested.

i'm interested, but I would have to borrow snowshoes and an ice ax, and it seems like the gear rental place at the ima is closed till next quarter. : (

I'd also like to come. I can drive if necessary. Where would you like to meet?

Michelle and my plans are changing for tomorrow - too many moving parts this close to Christmas. Sorry to bail on my own trip!
