I finish up grad school in December and start at my new job in late January. I really want to get a winter trip in before I start at my new job.
I want to spend a week to 10 days hiking/backpacking. I don't have any experience backpacking in the snow. I'm looking for a place with a lot of choices for day hiking and a easy first winter backpacking trip(1-2 nights). I'm interested getting input on how difficult trips would be or any additional information.
