Report:
The trip went well overall and followed the planned scheduled pretty closely. Small group of students, but they had fun - most had not been snowshoeing before so it was a new experience. The teacher brought an avalanche probe, shovel, and beacon, so the kids played with that some. We also went sledding on the slope that is to the west of the pond.

Suggestions:
Was able to rent the van through Enterprise's website using our Seattle ICO account. I rented it for pick up at 8am on Saturday and drop off at 9am on Sunday. Pick up was quick enough that you could push that later in the morning.

Digging a snow pit to learn about snow layers turned into just digging a really big hole. We filled it back in before leaving!
