Participant Information

Hike Dewdney Trail to camp at Paradise Meadows or PunchBowl.  Next day scramble up Snass Mtn. and out the Whatcom Trail.  I will be bringing my dog.  I have not been up Snass before, but will be planning to go up the west ridge. 

According to Bovouac.com, the peak itself is a rocky peak, with no glaciers. The standard route is the west ridge, a Class 2-3 scramble which is accessed via Punchbowl pass and the Dewdney trail.

Name Notes: "Snass" means "rain" in the Chinook Jargon.
