CMC Members - 


Two great CMC outings this weekend!  Let's get out there!



June 18th - 19th        Saturday-Sunday      Mt. Shasta: Hotlum-Wintun
Ski/Board Descent

Have you always wanted to ski or snowboard Mt. Shasta?  How about an ascent
under the light of a near full moon?  Depending upon the snowpack, the
<http://www.summitpost.org/hotlum-wintun-ridge/165904> Hotlum-Wintun route
can offer almost 7,000 feet of backcountry turns, more detail available from
SkiMountaineer.com.  Recent trip reports have noted excellent conditions
right now, and it's looking like the Forest Service and Mother Nature may
cooperate to open the Brewer Creek Trailhead at some point this week.


The tentative plan would be to rendezvous in Mt. Shasta city on Saturday the
18th and then make our way to the Brewer Creek trailhead on the East side of
the mountain.  Our single day ascent/descent would begin a little after
midnight on the 19th with the plan to summit mid-morning.  The target
descent time would be around noon, and it sounds like there's still snow to
ski/board all the way back to the vehicles at the trailhead.  Updated
conditions for Mt Shasta can be found at  <http://shastaavalanche.org/>

June 18th - 19th           Saturday-Sunday           Mount Stanford
North/Mount Morgan North

This outing's objectives will be Mount Stanford (class 2) with a 3rd class
traverse to Mount Morgan.  Saturday morning pick up permit at Bishop Ranger
Station 8:00 and drive to the Rock Creek Lake trailhead.  Backpack and set
up camp at one of the Hilton Lakes.  Sunday climb Mount Stanford (12,836') -
class 2.  Then traverse over to Mount Morgan (13,002'), class 2-3.  The
views and terrain should be terrific.  Weather and snow conditions may be
variable!  After the climb, we will return to camp and hike out.
Participants must be in good physical condition and comfortable with 3rd
class climbing and traveling off-trail with a backpack.  Ice axe, crampons,
and bear canister required.  Send email with experience/conditioning to Ron
