Are you ready for a little higher altitude workout? On Wednesday, March 13, 2013, we will snowshoe to Silver Dollar Lake on Guanella Pass above Georgetown. We will start at an altitude of 10,980’ and gain 1,150’ over 2 miles (round trip 4 miles). this trip is almost in the moderate range due to the altitude gain but not the distance. It is nice coming down! I needed snowshoes when I scouted. We will be in the Clear Creek Ranger District. We will meet in the APEX PARK parking lot in Golden to carpool, which is located just north of the I-70 and the Morrison exit # 259. Please arrive at 8:30 a.m., so we can leave promptly at 8:45a.m. We will stop at the Georgetown Visitor’s Center for a bathroom break before heading up Guanella Pass. We can stop for optional refreshments afterwards in Georgetown at the Lucha Cantina/ Ram (606 6th. St.) (uses all natural ingredients). So far the weather report for Wednesday is: Possibly 30% snow and a high of 41 degrees. Let’s watch the weather, you may not need to wear long underwear (but bring them). None to low avalanche danger on this trail up to Silver Lake. See you soon.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
