Holy crap. You've all given me a weath of info I almost don't know where to start.
Sneakers: We're not beaters. I'm sure were not gonna try to attempt a summit in sneakers and a fanny pack. I know the importance of "being prepared" in the backcounty. More than anything I think I take the kitchen sink on backpack trips.
It alost sound to me that weather can change very quickly on the Mt, so thanks for that.
"hand a man a summit and he has a summit, teach a man to summit and he can..." great stuff. I would love to say this would be the first in a string of mountain adventures. But like others have said we may get up on the mountain and discover that taking a frozen s*** on the side of mountain aint for us. I know I would rather learn the proper techniques in mountaineering and above all be safe...
Having said that my pal and I are no stranger to proper instruction. I would much rather learn the things needed to climb from an instructer. Then take what we learn into the field.
As far as cash is concerned I know you get what you pay for. If it be a "conga line" to the top or snow school. I know one would benefit more than the other.
Thank you all for the responces. I hope to post a trip report if we return alive.
