Itinerary:
skin up to either Needle or Flat iron (or both). then ski down. Final plans will be done in the morning. I expect the ascent to be done at a moderate pace (but notice it is still technically a D3 trip, AST-1 or equivalent is required) In the unlikely case of challenging AVI condition, an option B could be Zoa peak. (so far weather forecast is decent for saturday, but freezing level tend to be high). Please don't make any firm plan for the evening

Required Items to Bring:
AVI set (beacon, shovel probe), lunch, appropriate clothing.
