Details

Spend a night in the backcountry! Our trip will
begin with a winter snowshoe expedition (weather permitting) as we
travel into the backcountry near Brainard Lake to reach our rustic cabin destination. We will spend the night at the CMC-built Brainard Cabin, located at 10,405 feet in the busy, beautiful Brainard Lake Recreation Area of Roosevelt National Forest. The
following day will be spent further
exploring and learning about the pristine wilderness around us. Topics
covered may include winter camping,
snow shelters, avalanche safety, native plants and wildlife,
route-finding, and
survival in the backcountry.  Transportation, meals & necessary gear
included.  Warm clothes (layers) are needed!

 

We will meet at AMC at 8:00 am on Saturday, Feb 15th, and return by 5:30 pm Sunday, Feb 16th.
