Winter Fun for the first Meetup of 2012!
I attended this event with a few friends last year and we had a blast!
I hope the weather is as nice this year!
I'm planning on arriving between 12 &12:30. I'll be holding a Meetup Sign so look for me!
From the Winter Trails Day website:
Bring your family & friends to Snoqualmie Pass on Saturday, January 7, for a day of fun and an introduction to snowshoes. The Mountaineers invites all, even experienced snowshoers, to try out snowshoes from our Winter Trails Day partners: MSR, Tubbs, Atlas and REI—all for free!
Experts will be on hand to lead short tours every 20 minutes and offer mini-clinics, but you may also opt to explore the snow on your own. A snowman-building contest for kids and families is in the planning stage and hot chocolate will be available for all. The fun begins at 10 am and continues to 4 pm.
Directions: Take Exit 53 off I-90 at the pass, and turn right. At the “T” intersection, turn left (SR-906), go about 200 yards and look for the Winter Trails Day as well as The Mountaineers signs on the right. Parking will only be available along the road.
Winter Trails Day was developed 15 years ago to promote snowshoeing. It is a great way to introduce people to the splendor of winter trails
