On April 24th we headed out to Snoqualmie Pass to learn and practice basic snow travel and ice axe skills. This event marked the point where we went from doing basic conditioning hikes to getting on the snow and learning the safety skills required in snow travel. I was very pleased with how quickly everyone picked up the skills and was able to teach each other. I'm looking forward to getting out doing alpine snow conditioners to get us prepared for the climb.
