This is a Sierra Club snowshoe trip for people with some experience on snowshoes.  The outing will be 5-6 miles (depending upon conditions) and will have an elevation gain of around 1,000 feet.  We will meet at 9:00 a.m. near the Starbuck's off the Mt. Rose Hwy.  Bring plenty of water, lunch, and clothing for conditions.  Ride-sharing is encouraged, but not expected.  The cost for the snow park permit is $5 and can be shared by people ride-sharing, along with gas.  There is an optional side-trip afterward to Grover's Hot Springs.  Folks wanting to do this will ride-share together or travel independently.  The cost for Grover's is $7.  You will need a swim suit and towel.  A dollar donation is encouraged to help cover costs for the First Aid training that is a prerequisite for all Sierra Club Outings Leaders.  Trip limit will be 12, as we already have 5 signed up from the Sierra Club website:   Waiver to be signed at meeting site.

Please be sure to sign off trip if your plans change, so someone else can have your spot.  Thanks.

Leaders:  Holly and Jim

    Kathy and Maria, We are going to be parking at a snow park near the intersection of Hwy. 88 and 89. Take Hwy 88 from the Y at Minden and I 395 heading south. It turns west to head up the canyon. At the top of the canyon is Hope Valley. We will be there around 10:15ish.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
