Should you need to contact me the evening before the hike or the am of the hike TXT or CALL, do not e mail as I will not be checking e mail after 4pm.


Our route will be on the summer trail to Woodland lake, the trail may or may not be broken in, so we may end up burning considerably more energy than on-trail snowshoes of similar length and altitude gain. Be sure you're properly conditioned for this situation. All hike participants will be expected to share in trail breaking. Be prepared with sunscreen, lots of water, extra clothing layers, possible cold windy conditions. We will plan on stopping after 30 min hiking for clothing adjustment, breaks after that approx every 60 min. Snowshoes and hiking poles, microspikes or alternative traction device necessary.
Any trip member with medical conditions that might impact the trip are asked to contact trip leader in advance to avoid discussions at the trail head.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
