Joe, Looking for something to do on Thurs or Fri or Sat.

(Weather looking best for Friday/Saturday - though I understand many folks have to work on Friday.)

Not sure I qualify, but I'd be willing to take the front to treeline if there were an option to summit the same day.

Jim


PS - just scouting options for the Th/F/Sa window - and mostly considering the Sangre, but Massive could work.

Jim
A one day summit is always doable.
Have plans later that require multiple nights,need to start sleeping on snow.

My snowboard plans petered out this weekend. I too will be looking for something to do possibly if my wife doesnt wrangle me into something. Only problem is I will be on a flight back from CA on Friday so I wouldnt be able to do much except travel that day. By no means am I asking to change plans, just letting you know if I can make my time work to match whatever you guys end up doing, I would be in :). Massive and/or Sangres both sound good to me. All I ask is I get a 3 hour head start on Jim, that boy can move.

I also recently dropped a few bones for an expedition sytle tent that I would love to use in the back country. So even if this doesn't work out let me know if you want to do something in the future Joe that involves snow camping, need to put my Bibler Fitzroy to use!
