Write Up:
The snowshoe trip to Elk was in question all week because of high avalanche warnings and an avalanche on Elk on Tuesday. Six GMS members Dell Meuchel, Rick Thomas, Carly Putman, Jesse Manning, Jason Wilkes, Martin Valles and three guests John Reynolds, Jesse Uhde and Dustin Reynolds all met to challenge Elk. Temperature at departure was -2 but no wind. As we progressed up the south west ridge (trail breakers had helped from Saturday) the wind began to creep up and the cold was upon us. We made it to the hump before the final summit ridge and the summit was hidden by blowing snow along with very cold temperatures. We were satisfied with our trek and truned around, another day would always come.
