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: toiyabe.sierraclub.org/gbgroup. 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
