New Meetup: The "It Couldn't Get Any Worse" Brainard Lake Snowshoe

From: Jason M.

Announcing a new Meetup for Rocky Mountain Madness!

What: The "It Couldn't Get Any Worse" Brainard Lake Snowshoe

When: Sunday, December 19,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Boulder REI
Boulder CO
Boulder, CO 80301

Weather has pooped on my original plans, so lets cruise on up to Brainard Lake and check the place out. We'll probably end up climbing some of the nearby 13ers, so if you're just in for the snowshoe you may be returning on your own.

On that same note, we may poke our heads up above treeline and end up running back down to the parking lot tail between legs.

The weather looks really bad, with a 50% chance of snow and high winds as of right now, but you never know when it comes to our Rocky Mountains. I for one refuse to sacrifice a possibly salvageable day in the mountains!

Required Equipment:
- Your winter layering and day-hiking arsenal
- Snowshoes
- Ice axe and crampons if you are going to climb

Summit Elevation: ? feet
Trailhead Elevation: 10,200 feet
Elevation Gain:[masked] feet
Round-trip Length:[masked] miles
