Snowshoe Snoqualmie Pass

I will lead an easy/moderate snowshoe trip at Snoqualmie Pass every Thursday in January, weather permitting.

Less than 5mi, with less than 1,000 feet elevation gain.  Don't expect much level terrain.  Snowshoes with traction devices (e.g., toe claws) are highly recommended.  Bring poles!

These trips are good for beginners, but please be in decent shape.  Please note if you have a SnowPark Permit when you RSVP.

I WILL CANCEL THIS IF THE WEATHER AND/OR DRIVING CONDTIONS ARE BAD.  ALWAYS CHECK THIS POSTING BEFORE LEAVING HOME.

    A cold wind early but always in bright sunshine. A nice 2.5 hour first snowshoe outing of the season. Thanks for all the company girls, and Todd the token male.

    Dress warm. The high has only been 20 deg the last few days.

    Don't worry about keeping up. This will be a SLOW-PACED trip. I haven't snowshoed yet this season and I've just recovered from a 2 week cold, so I won't be too peppy. The objective is to have fun. As the season progresses the trips will become harder.

    Anyone else like me who wants to take it easy and try out the snow shoes, not push it trying to get to the top?

    So it's going to be pretty straight up? I'm not in the greatest shape, so may need to wait and work out some more. I did snowshoeing way way back and it wasn't easy but understand the shoes have improved. I think it might be better to start on fairly level trail?

    No permits of any kind are required for this trip. We will probably park at the summit ski area, they are closed until 4pm. If it is sunny we will head up the vacant ski slope. If cloudy/windy/foggy we will head up into Commonwealth Basin.
