SNOWSHOE AT ECHO SUMMIT---different abilities welcome

THIS HIKE HAS AN RSVP LIMIT.....CHANGE RSVP TO NO IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO ATTEND-----DON'T BE A NO-SHOW!!

Join Andy and I as we slowly ascend southward through forest and meadows, rising up to steep cliffs and, finally, panoramic views from our 9000 foot turnaround point.

Different fitness levels are welcome, and folks can go at their own pace. We will simply re-trace our tracks back to the cars (May split group, with Andy leading faster hikers and I hanging back with more leisurely group---we'll have the good food). More advanced hikers should be able to reach the uppermost slopes and turnaround point, and all should have little problem reaching the large, scenic meadow about 1/2 way up.  Planning on lunch at summit of hike.  If you go to the summit it will be a total of 7 miles and 1700 feet of elevation gain.

***MAJOR SNOW-STORM CANCELS---CHECK FOR UPDATE THE DAY PRIOR***

*Plan on leaving carpool site in Folsom by 7:45 latest*

**ALL PARTICIPANTS SHOULD HAVE PROPER  ATTIRE FOR COLD, DETERIORATING WEATHER**

SUGGESTED ITEMS:  Cotton not recommended. Warm gloves or mittens, optional glove liners, waterproof pants and jacket, fleece and other warm layer, long underwear layer, waterproof boots (can use 2 produce plastic bags per foot for extra water-resistance), gaiters, sun-hat, fleece head cap, sunscreen, lip-balm, poles, lunch,  2 liters water, sunglasses, camera, whistle.

**ALL VEHICLES SHOULD HAVE CHAINS, SNOW-TIRES, OR 4 WHEEL DRIVE**

Directions: Take Hwy 50 East about 73 miles to Echo Summit (elev. 7300).  Turn RIGHT into  entrance to Adventure Mountain ($15 fee per car), where we will park. (If start downhill and see Lake Tahoe, you've missed turnoff). Gate opens  9:00am.
