Snow shoe emmigrant lake 8 miles around 800-1100 feet

  • Apr 13, 2013 · 9:15 AM

 

 

start time around 9:15 at

Distance around 8 miles

Elevation gain around 1100 feet

Difficulty   intermediate to advanced

 

I changed this trip, if you are interested you need to drop me an e mail by 8pm on Friday night.

 

We will park at Caples Lake and hike along the lake shore to Emmigrant Lake.

 

 

This is not a beginners trip, you should have some experience snow shoeing

 

Weather (as of Tuesday )

At this point looking sunny and 53 degr. for Kirkwood with wind around 9 mph

More weather forecast here (but only one day ahead)

Snow conditions, not an expert on this , but with the fairly clear days this week, I do assume frozen snow in the morning (which makes walking on easy, and not to worry about steep slopes since we don't have any) and as the day warms up with the sun, more soft and little slushy at the end.

    It was a great trip, I probably will do it again next season, the snow got pretty soft at the end and made it into a bigger workout :) here is the link to my gps data on every trail, http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=2091474&code=0997aa132a7a2f46e9bcf14727c27f2a

    Hey considering going, but seeing if anyone wants to carpool. I can drive or jump in someone's car. I would be leaving from SF, but can also swing through the east bay on the way.
