Mount Whitney Winter Ascent

This trip will provide an opportunity for a winter ascent of Mount Whitney
(14,491') via the Mountaineer's Route. Depending on the snow level, we will
need to hike/snowshoe at least 1-2 miles up the road to the trailhead. To
accommodate short winter days and heavy winter packs our approach to Iceberg
Lake will take two days. We plan to summit on the third day, and snowshoe
out/drive home on the fourth day. Snowshoes, ice axe and crampons required.

Mountain from Westgard Pass. Skiers only. Depending on snow conditions and
road accessibility, 40 to 50+/- roundtrip miles, with 5,000'+ gain.
Thursday afternoon, meet on White Mountain Road and ski in several miles
