Moonlight Snowshoeing

Or Moonlight hiking. It depends on the snow. Once again, this is a High Park Ski Club program. We hike through High Park, then we gather for drinks and food, hopefully at the Yellow Griffin. Keep watching these notes for further information.

History of High Park Clubs:
In the beginning there was one High Park Ski Club,
We went skiing, hiking, biking, canoeing, and rollerblading together.
When the membership grew, and the type of activities diverged,
the non-skiing activities were split into independently operated clubs.

The current High Park Hiking Club organizer is Howard Gibson.
Our website is at http://www.hphc.ca/

      We are sorry we missed you! It was cold, and we really wanted to get going.

    Can I rent snowshoes at high park itself? What would be the cost of renting? Thanks

      Last year, it ended at around 8:30, 9:00pm. I am not sure about the distance. Perhaps four or five kilometers.

    We meet at the Bloor Street entrance to High Park. This is immediately south of the High Park subway station. The time is 7:00pm. Dress warmly. There is no snow, so we will be hiking. Good hiking boots are ideal. Comfortable, waterproof shoes with good treads will get the job done.

    Will there be enough snow on ground for snow shoeing?

      It is not looking good for snow-shoeing. Bring hiking boots.

    I don't have snowshoes but would come if it is just hiking. I've answered yes on standby...hope that's okay.

      You are fine. High Park's ski trips require buses to be scheduled. Moonlight snow-showing requires the leader to show up. This is much less expensive.

      High Park Ski Club's ski trips require a bus, at a cost of around $800-$1000. This is why they require prior sign-ups. Moonlight snow-shoe does not require a bus, so they are way more flexible.

    The question has been asked. You can rent snow-shoes at Mountain Equipment Coop, http://www.mec.ca. Unless there is massive snow, warm, comfortable, waterproof books will work fine.

      By "books", I meant "boots". Where is the #$%%$ edit button?
