Wednesday, 5/23/2018, Awesome Wednesday Evening (AWE) Hike

Join us for a fun, moderate paced evening social hike. We will look for blooming flowers on Kohler Mesa, then continue on to points connected to the Mesa Trail.  There are several ways to access Kohler Mesa - with the continued rains and wet weather, I'll plot the least impactful way in (which will probably be up the road from NIST).  We will meet at the carpool location so that I can make a decision on where to start based on latest conditions.We will have a break to share snacks - feel free to bing some to share (and you are welcome to partake regardless!)To better track participation, please register ahead of time for this trip but it is  also OK to show up at the carpool location.Come prepared for any weather with good footwear, rain jacket, headlamp or flashlight.  Option for after-hike food and drink at a nearby restaurant.

Saturday, 5/26/2018, Ski **or** Climb Mt. Neva

This is a combined ski and snow climb trip. While this is one trip, there will be two distinct groups: hikers and skiers. We will all do the approach together, and snow climb up the Juliet Couloir of Mt. Neva together. The two groups will split for the descent, and meet back at the bottom of the couloir. Keep in mind the couloir is in the 40 degree range, and is a steep ski. Both groups will then hike back to the TH together. If anyone is uncomfortable on the snow descent, we will instead descend the southeast face of Mt. Neva, which is shallower and is an easy glissade down.  Everyone is required to bring crampons, an ice ax, and helmet. Skiers are required to bring beacon, shovel, and probe, while hikers are only encouraged to bring avy gear. Skiers should also bring skins, and hikers are recommended to bring snowshoes.

Wednesday, 6/6/2018, Awesome Wednesday Evening (AWE) Hike

Join us for a fun, moderate paced evening social hike.  This time of year conditions vary widely (snowy/icy/muddy trails). I’m thinking we’ll hike up the steep west ridge of Mt Sanitas then down the valley but still plan on meeting at the carpool location in case I change. Some will bring snacks to share during our break midway. To better track participation, please register ahead of time for this trip but it is  also OK to just show up at the carpool location. Come prepared for any weather with good footwear, rain jacket, headlamp or flashlight.  There will be an optional after-hike food and drink at a nearby restaurant if still feeling sociable!
