Participant Information

The goal of this trip is to reach Rainbow mountain via hanging lake. It will be a day of +20km with an elevation gain of around 1500m so good fitness level is required. Not super high pressure to reach the summit but it is the goal though. Once on top depending on how the group feels, the time of day and the weather/terrain conditions we might ski the north side and skin back up to eventually come down the same way we came. 

Since it is spring we would want to leave early and reach our goal before the sun has had to big of an impact on the snow. Gate of the Olympic park opens at 9am and closes at 4:30 so we ill park at the Alexander Falls.

Jonathan who is not a member but did this trip already will join but we woud love to have a some more people join the trip. I am pretty new to the area so for me this is an exploration trip.

Make sure you have all 10 essentials with you as well as avalanche safety gear and it might be a good idea to bring ski crampons.
