Details

We will drive to the Mayflower Gulch parking lot on highway 91, about half way up Fremont Pass. We will snowshoe about a mile up the road on packed snow to the basin below Drift Peak and Fletcher Mtn. We will snowshoe up and across the basin in untracked snow to get to the second cabin where we will take a break / pictures / lunch. Be prepared to snowshoe in 2 to 3 feet of unpacked snow, (hopefully) across the basin and back. We should have great views of Fletcher Mtn, Drift Peak, and Atlantic Peak. We'll snowshoe back down the road.

 



Notes

Please be sure to try on your snowshoes before the day of the trip.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
