We will start at the Fern Lake trailhead past the Moraine Park campground.  We will head to Fern Lake and if everyone is feeling good to Odessa Lake for an extra 500 feet elevation gain.  We will loop back past Cub Lake.  Expect to break trail in heavy snow in some sections of the trail.  We will snowshoe at a moderate pace.  Average 2.0 to 2.5 mph.  Please check your snowshoes prior to the trip.  We will snowshoe in cold and difficult weather, no weather cancellations.  We will only cancel if travel to the TH is unsafe.


Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions.  A weather report, trip plan and map will be sent via email the week of the trip.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
