12 Jan January 15 Meeting
Not sure if there will be enough snow at Meissner, but we are going to go for it for Wednesday’s (January 15) meeting. There’s 12″ as of today, but the temperature is supposed to hit 50 by Wednesday. Ski, snowshoe or hike, it will still be fun to sit around the stove in the shelter.
The moon will be full, but low in the sky at meeting time so bring a light source. Don’t forget your sno-park permit. Some of us will head up about 5:00 to get set up and do some avalanche beacon practice.
Call if you are interested (503 338-8244) or just show up for the 7:00 meeting. In case you have not been there, Meissner sno-park is 13 miles from Bend on the Cascade Lakes Highway. It is the first sno-park on the right. Check the Cascades Mountaineers Facebook page for carpool info.
