This is a loop snowshoe of approximately 5.5 miles in the Brainard Lake Recreation Area. Participants on the Glacier & Whitefish Ski & Snowshoe Adventure will be allowed to sign up first with a password. If space allows, the trip may be opened up to other CMC members. The views of the surrounding Indian Peaks are stunning if the weather is clear!  We will follow snowshoe trails, that are gently rolling with some hills.  We plan to reach Brainard Lake for lunch, and then return on another snowshoe trail. 

We will be snowshoeing, with poles.  Please review your pack for 10 essentials, particularly given winter conditions. This area is often quite windy and cold.  Dress accordingly, in layers. The trailhead sits at over 10,000'. We will have an elevation gain of approximately 650'.  Remember water, lunch, snacks for the entire day.  Plan on a full day for the trip.

There are restrooms at the trailhead. Please volunteer to drive if you have AWD or 4WD.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
