The dates initially set were December 5 - 9.

I am wondering if these dates are good or would it be better to have the workshop between Christmas and New Year, or even better in January?

Personally I would love to be in Zion just after a winter storm. Snow and ice would help add emotional impact to images - instead of the usually "nice" shots.

Since these free workshops require some participation by everyone please post your ideas and preferences here.
