Just a quick reminder – if you’re considering hiking Mount Whitney this year, Feburary 1st marks the official beginning of “Permit Season.”

All completed permit applications need to have a February postmark, so get your group together, get that envelope in the mail this week, and cross your fingers for the first drawings on February 16th.

More information on the permit process is available here. Good luck everyone. Hope to see you up there!
