I know this post is going to make some people happy and others mad. I dont like the decision making aspect of these outings damn weather!

<strong>The outing is going to switch to Peak 10941 in the Boulder Mountains.</strong> I know Wes drove nearly to the lower launch site yesterday, but I dont see how we can get a bunch of vehicles in there. Not to mention the fact that I dont like the idea of group camping on a cold windy night in a snow field. Plus there is the whole new snow prediction for Thursday and Friday that wont really have a chance to melt off the road before Saturday morning... not a great road to drive in snowy conditions.

Here are the new plans:

Friday night I have reserved a condo at the Woodmont Apartments in Hailey. The address is 740 Red Ash Drive #F4 in Hailey, Idaho

This is a 3 bedroom condo. We should be able to sleep about 8 people (maybe more) if people dont mind sleeping on couches and floors. You are all welcome to stay there. Bring a sleeping bag and pad in case all of the beds are taken. I will be at the condo around 6pm on Friday. We can meet there, have some dinner and hangout for the evening. IF YOU ARE COMING IN FROM BOISE ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND LEAVING ON SATURDAY AFTER THE OUTING, PLEASE CONTACT ME AND WE CAN DISCUSS CAR POOLING.

Saturday morning we will meet at the trailhead at 8am. The trailhead is 20.5 miles north of Ketchum where Owl Creek and Spring Creek meet ID 75. We will follow the southwest ridge of Peak 10941.

*** This peak will require skis or snowshoes. It might be a good idea to bring an ice axe and crampons, however that depends on your comfort level on snow. John Platt did not need him on his snowshoe of the peak.

I apologize for being wishy-washy on this trip. There was no way I could have predicted a cool spring like this. In years past, I have seen King Mountain nearly snow free by mid-April. I didnt expect that, but I fully expected us to be able to easily drive to 7,200 feet this year. See you on Friday or Saturday!

I was on King yesterday, the snow above 9k is still pretty punchy and the skiing above 9,500' wasn't any fun at all. Nothing a little warm weather or new snow wouldn't fix!
