This outing is intended for beginners who have never been on snowshoes or are fairly new to snowshoeing. We’ll be going to either the Donner Memorial State Park or Donner Summit, depending on snow levels and conditions. Hike stats: 4-5 miles (approx), elevation gain 250 - 500' (est.). Hikers must be in reasonably good condition since we'll be at 7,000' and snowshoeing is hard work. Bring the “10 essentials,” snowshoes & waterproof boots, water, snacks, lunch, layered clothing due to changeable weather conditions and $$ for carpool drivers. There is a daily use fee at Donner Memorial State Park. Sno-Park passes are required at Donner Summit (most likely location) - I will have a few single day Sno-Park passes available for drivers for $5 each. No minors. No dogs. Rain, snow, and/or chain controls cancel. Hike limited to 15.
I will email the details about the local "rendezvous" spot to those signed-up about a week prior to the hike!
Contact leader for details. Leader: Bruce Notareus, [masked] or[masked] (before 9PM).
(Note: Please do not RSVP for this outing if you have disabled your Meet-Up email, in whole or in part. I need to be able to communicate with RSVPs collectively and individually. If your Meet-Up settings do not allow me to do so, your RSVP will not be accepted.)
