Details

Meet in Boulder at the specified time. We will drive to the TH at East Portal (west of Rollinsville). We will follow the designated trail to Rogers Pass lake and then up to the plateau at the nearby Heart lake. The start of the trail is typically well packed snow, even in the prime winter season. Expect to use snowshoes for at least the upper part of the trail (the last 1-2 miles), as the path is typically covered in deep, soft snow at the mesa leading to Rogers Pass lake and beyond to Heart lake. Bring a good outer shell layer - in case of strong wind frequent to nearby James peak. This is the first snowshoe trip i ever did in Colorado and often stop out in winter seasons. It is a scenic destination any time of the year, that comes with a good workout (expect 6 hours trip time plus 2 for transportation). No BC skiers this time please.
