SURVIVE | Follow the Leader

Having just learned to snowshoe and in search of adventure, I joined a party going out to the Sierra Club's Peter Grub Hut high above Lake Tahoe. We trekked in without incident, met two locals who came in on skis, and enjoyed a night of laughter—while a storm was moving in. —Claudia Hilligoss

"When several groups are traveling together, it is imperative to select a leader who can keep everyone together, facilitate the brainstorming of ideas, and develop a plan—especially in trying situations. In this case, given your group's lack of direction-finding skills, you should have stayed at the hut until the storm cleared."
