Which peaks do you have planned over the holiday weekend? If they are any of the 14ers, other that Pike's, I would definitely be interested.

Do you expect to use such gear as crampons, snowshoes, or axe? If so, I would have to get that gear. I don't need to be spending my money right now, but I think I can make an exceptiong
