Hiking at night is one of my favorite activities! And when better to do it than under the light of the full moon?

The plan is to leave the city around 10pm or so, to hike up the First Pump of Mount Seymour (~4 km one way and 400m elevation) where we will enjoy the (hopefully clear) views and have a midnight snack, and to return to the city around 2am. If the weather is poor, we might decide sleep is a better use of our time, but if it is only cloudy and not precipitating, we might decide that night hikes are still fun and go out anyways. If the avalanche conditions are less than excellent, we can decide on a different objective - maybe Dog Mountain (2.5 km one way and little elevation).

This is a very beginner friendly trip! If you have never hiked before, you are more than welcome; you will have a fun time!

Some people may chose to bring snowshoes. Some may chose to bring skis. Boots and microspikes might be sufficient. I'll probably bring some sort of flotation myself. Even if the moon is out and bright, headlamps are a must. It will probably be cold on a mountain at night in the winter. Down and other winter clothes are a good idea. Snacks to share are mandatory, but may be substituted for drink or musical entertainment.

There will be no pre-trip for this, and I will organize rides, etc., over email. If you have questions, you can ask them on the message board. 

The full moon is actually the previous morning at ~5am, but I have a midterm in the afternoon...
