Synopsis

The trip runs Saturday, March 19th, 2011 to Hollyburn Mountain. Exact time of departure TBD, likely in the early evening.

This is a beginner-friendly trip. We'll be heading up Hollyburn in the evening to snowshoe up to the summit. We'll probably be back quite late at night.

No pre-trip meeting.

Questions? Email Emily

Why?

Our moon is full on March 19, and it is the lunar perigee. It's nice to hike sans headlamp, especially if its clear.
