Description:

Edits: Trip destination has changed and there is now a pretty low max group size--8 people including myself--considering the number of signups. Check out the message board thread for more info.

Roland will take another carload if he can get a carload.  See the VOC Message Board for details.

Even if you think there's no way you're high enough on the signup list to be one of the 8-13 people to go, you should still show up at the pretrip. I'm hoping there's enough experience/people/resources in the remainder of the group that they can organize themselves into another team.

Previously the destination was here:

According to the VOCwiki, the time to get to this hut is about 3-5 hours. I've never been to this hut, myself. This is actually the first trip I've ever organized. And on top of all that I'm not qualified to assess avalanche conditions (although I've been told the route to the shelter isn't very avalanche-prone). So overall, some experienced people joining me to help me with that would be appreciated. All the same, it should be beginner-friendly as the access to the hut is apparently pretty straightforward.

We'll sort the rest out at the pre-meeting.
