Details

We will snowshoe southwest from the trailhead toward Berthoud Pass.  This trail follows the upper section of the Frasier River and is used by skiers or boarders skiing Berthoud Pass.  With luck it won't be too busy on a Monday.  Once we reach Berthoud Pass, we'll enjoy lunch and then retrace our path back to the cars.  There is one rather steep hill about 1.5 miles in but we should be able to ascend it.  We went on this trip in 2015 as roster members and remember it as being very pleasant, but we'll consider this trip as EXPLORATORY for your leaders.
