snowshoe/hike - peak 9536, layton - February 18, 2024

We plan to snowshoe/hike to Peak 9536 located between Thurston Peak and North Layton Peak, weather, conditions and situation permitting. The route is on the Great Western Trail, except the last short section to the summit. I have hiked/snowshoed in the area but not to the peak. Please bring 10 Essentials, microspikes, and snowshoes. In addition, bring poles and gaiters if there is sufficient snow for snowshoeing. Avalanche safety gear (beacon, probe & shovel) is recommended but not required. If this changes, I will update the information. I have an extra set of avalanche safety gear - if you want to use it, please let me know. If there is not enough snow, we will hike. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, Feb 16, for the meeting place and time. Registration is required. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Registrants will receive more detailed info. Limit 8.
