Snowshoe Squaw Valley (Very easy 2 miles RT)

I(Michael Guthrie) will be 1989 Blue and Grey Dodge Truck. Meet me at the Roseville Park N Ride at Taylor rd at 8 am. We will leave shortly after a brief orientation and paperwork. I can take 1 passenger with me and anyone's gear that needs to. Carpools can be arranged in advance or when we meet in the parking lot at the P & R.

This is an extremely easy snowshoe hike. it is two miles round trip. I would like to meet people and get a chance to gauge peoples ability to snowshoe and help those that have never snowshoe-ed before. We will be hiking in. I will setup a base camp and we will have fun from there. I have two sleds that I will be bringing for those that want to sled as well as snowshoe. The above photos are from last Sunday. I hope it is as beautiful this Sunday.  Avalanche warning or extreme storm will cancel.  Expect to be out there all day. I have no idea what time we will be back if you have plans in the evening please do not attend.

Important without these items you will be turned away and will not be able to attend.

10 Hiking Essentials <------ Please read and make sure you have the basics.

Preparing for safe and comfortable winter activities <-------- Please review and make sure you have items so you are safe.

    This was a really, really nice trip. Michael was very attentive to having a delightful adventure. First experience in snow showing. (not difficult but so beautiful) We even brought plastic round sleds and built a sled hill. When you bif on a sled and get snow on your face, for a moment it is so cold. Michael so experienced, I said "my hair is frozen" he informed me it would thaw so I kept going. Tha trip was not cold just so beautiful. Had such a good time, you can not put a price tag on such a happy time= Thank-You Michael
