Join us for a day on Mt. Lola just north of Truckee. We will carry skis to the snow level and hope to get in a little skiing as well as a climb of the peak from the North along the trail. Any kind of skis is fine, or none at all for those who have not been bitten by the ski bug. Climbing skins may be used if the snow is too soft to walk. Contact leader about lodging. Can be done as a day trip from BA.

Start: 11/22/2008 1:00 pm

Join the Day Hiking Section of our chapter to scale Mt. Sizer.
