Come one, come all, let’s have a blast planning our trips for spring, summer and fall. Leaders, please come with ideas for trips you want to plan. Climbers, bring ideas for what you want to do this year.

There will be pizza (donations requested to cover the cost), salad and vegetables so that you do not need to have dinner before the meeting. Those who can, please bring a pot luck dish to share.

Saturday we'll ski the 22-mile round trip to Glacier Point for the spectacular views of Yosemite Valley. Sunday's options include trails near Bridalveil Creek, Dewey Pt, or tele-skiing at the Badger Pass ski area. Other options are available if there is either too much or not enough snow.

Cordillera Blanca

In January 2010, Enrique Rodriguez left sunny California for the icy slopes of Vinson Massif, the high-point for the continent of Antarctica. With cold-weather resilience developed over years of
waiting for the school bus in New Hampshire and winter camping skills honed high in the alpine zone of Mt. Washington, Enrique will discuss
his sub-zero expedition in pursuit of his 6th "Seven Summit."
