Details

For RMOTHG. North Ten Mile is a lovely out-and-back trail which includes conifers and aspen, willows and boulders, a glistening creek which sometimes hides under snow, vistas grand and small and two 11000 ft peaks on either side. We'll shoe a SLOW, relaxed pace for two hours, going about two miles to Eagles Nest Wilderness Area or more depending on how we feel, and back after a lunch stop. This is a "walking meditation", mostly-quiet snowshoe, and we'll pause to enjoy scenery, be glad we're outside. We start at 9160 ft on a plowed road to TH, then up, for about 800 ft elev gain (Could someone bring your gps so we could get accurate elev gain? Thanks.), but not hard now that snow covers the rolling trail. When we scouted, trail was soft-packed but wandering to the side found us in wonderful soft deeper snow for real snowshoeing!  The aim of this snowshoe is relaxation, appreciation, and for those of us inclined, playing in the snow!




Notes

Bring your usual ten essentials, winter gear of extra hats, gloves/mittens. Be prepared for usual winter sudden changes. Don't forget id/meds/first aid kit, WATER, lunch/extra snacks, poles.  LOOK FOR TUES EVENING EMAIL RE POSSIBLE CHANGES DUE TO WEATHER, ROAD CONDITIONS.  Please let me know if you have medical conditions that can cause you or us problems ( epi pen?  diabetes?  the usual that might interfere?).  Again, we'll offer an optional after-shoe snack in Frisco.  




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
