Sloan Peak Winter Scramble
The 2000-2001 ski season was awful due to minimal snowfall. To make up for the lack
of skiing I returned to snowshoeing. I decided to challege
myself and do winter scrambles instead of just basic snowshoe trips. Winter scrambles usally have more elevation gain and are much steeper and require more use of the ice axe.
My first winter scramble was up the 5099 foot Pratt Mountain near Snoqualmie Pass. I definitely
exerted myself during the hike, but felt good when I got to the top. From the summit I was able
to see many of the surrounding mountains, including Granite Mountain which Jamie and I hiked up last summer.
