snowshoe/ snow hike - maple mt in provo

Maple Mt (9,088 ft) is located in the south of Y Mts in Provo. Winter is the easiest time to make Maple Mt because we can avoid nasty bushwhacking. We will probably start with microspikes and switch to snowshoes when snow becomes deeper. The last part to the peak does not have a trail. The route involves some steep parts. Bring snowshoes, microspikes and 10Es. Whether avalanche safety gear (avalanche beacon, probe and shovel) is required or not will be posted later. I have extra avalanche safety gear. If you want to borrow it, please indicate when you register. This snowshoe will be exploratory. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, March 20, for the meeting place and time. Registration priority will be given to WMC members.
