I was more thinking of meeting at the Ski Hut.  It might be better than waiting around in the parking lot for people to show up, especially latecomers.

I'm thinking of getting up there early and making . . . PANCAKES!

Yieah, now you're talkin' ..

Hey yall.

I did a few trips up to the bowl last year to practice beginning skills, and I'm very excited to meet people more adventurous than my only buddy with gear (great guy, but his comfortable winter limit seems to be walking up Icehouse).  See everyone at Manker...

I might overnight it in the bowl near the hut instead of trying to rally up so early and make pace with you guys.

What's the road/Manker like on Fridays during the day?  Should I still go early, or does the workday/schoolday factor mitigate traffic and parking insanity?

@Bert - the ski lift is open so there's a fair amount of traffic coming and going from there - yesterday (midweek) wasn't bad at all.

Friday afternoon should be easy, it's Saturday that will be the joke - it will be a zoo getting out of there.

Question: will it be better to use microspikes at first probably up to the ski hut you think? And then crampons? Or is there enough snow to pretty much just stick with crampons?

The microspikes might be useful on the bare parts of the San Antonio Falls Road (always covered with black ice in the mornings), but after that you probably won't need anything special on your feet below the Ski Hut.

Tracie, I think Norma remebers the frantically stressed look on Ferns face after he realized he had just tried to force 160 pounds into a little helmet. He wasn't smiling.

but we all know about going somewhere in the snow with Taco...



yes, the pack is bigger than he is.

and you will be teaching how to glissade with your spikes on ?
