If it snows too much Saturday or the avalanche danger rises we will not go to Cathedral. Please come well rested and fully prepared to fully participate in the decision making. Alternates are Spray Range traverse, Cirque Peak, or Surprise Pass. If we haven't skied together before please message me with your ski ability, fitness and avalanche experience (specifically if you've taken AST 2) and any advanced first aid you have.
