Participant Information

We will make a group decision on Monday morning to go for Matier or the Shoulder. The defining factor will be the chance for high winds on Sunday night. This is a steep slope so we will need to be sure to make the right decision. Please do not sign up unless you are prepared to discuss the current avalanche conditions and weather. Please research the area as we will be discussing terrain choice and objectives.

I will not be acting as trip leader, only trip organizer. Our decisions will be made as a group.

Beacon, Shovel, Probe,
