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.

We'll ski from Badger Pass to Glacier Point and back in one day -- for those of you with stamina! Our lodging for Fri and Sat nights is a recently remodeled charming mountain A-frame cabin in Yosemite West (convenient to Badger Pass), with great views and a hot tub on the deck. 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."

Arun isn't dead yet but he is working on it. Join us on what has been Arun's annual Roundtop Day Hike. Arun cannot do it this year so this means you are stuck with Ron Karpel and Rick Booth. Consider yourself warned. Cat herding begins at 8:00 AM at the Carson Pass Snow Park on Sunday, March 21, 2010. We will be moving at 8:30 AM. Snow shoes or skis, ice ax and crampons are needed and the ability to use them. Group size limited to 12. No morons.

Thursday March 25, 2010
Start: 03/25/2010

Five lucky people will enjoy early Spring skiing and take Thursday off work so they can have a leisurely drive to Tom's Place (near Mammoth) for Thursday night the 25th; then on Friday the 26th ski the 5 miles from the Rock Creek SnoPark to the Mosquito Flats Hut. We'll spend 3 nights at the hut so we can take advantage of glorious backcountry in the incomparable Little Lakes Valley and beyond, then return for Monday night to modern cabin accommodations (including good food, hot showers and sauna!) at Rock Creek Lodge .
