Join me for a weekend of snowshoeing and winter camping. Plan: Driving up to Yosemite (from San Francisco) at 5am on Saturday 1/18. Snowshoe one of the trails off Crane Flat (off Tioga Road/Hwy 120). Link to the trails here: https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/upload/cflat-winter.pdf Set up camp at Hodgdon Meadow campground (20 min drive from Crane Flat, $18 per night per campsite). On Sunday we will pack up and drive down to Yosemite Valley and set up camp at Camp 4. (50 min drive from Hodgdon Meadow, $6 per person per night). Then we will either take the shuttle to Badger Pass Ski Area or drive ourselves there, and snowshoe to Dewey Point. Link to the trail here: https://socalhiker.net/snowshoeing-to-dewey-point-in-yosemite/ Then we will head back to Camp 4 and camp there for the evening. Monday is flexible, options include: hiking around Yosemite Valley (mist trail/vernal falls if trail conditions are right with microspikes), lower section of 4 mile trail, head back to badger pass for skiing, or just head home early. I have room in my car for one, maybe two depending how much gear is brought. Split cost of gas/tolls. I’ve got entrance fee covered. Alternatively you can just meet us at a point. Winter camping experience is mandatory. However, snowshoeing is beginner friendly so don’t need to be a pro. It’s important you have all the right gear for winter conditions. PM for more info.

In addition to our official site, we also host the most active canyoneering Meetup groups, with the best-trained canyoneers in the country! http://www.meetup.com/canyoneering ...and others! Sooo ..... What is Canyoneering? Canyoneering is an emerging adventure sport which has grown significantly in popularity over the past decade. This exciting sport combines hiking, wading, swimming, jumping, sliding, boulder-hopping, scrambling, down-climbing, sometimes packrafting and always rappelling — often over waterfalls! Physically, it takes significantly less upper body strength than rock climbing, and is therefore a sport that can be enjoyed by a much larger spectrum of the population .. young or mature .. tall or short .. large or small. If you can hike, you can canyoneer! This sport has unique risks and requires a very specific set of technical skills to enjoy it safely. Rock-climbing, caving, mountaineering and swift water training teach related skills, but Canyoneering has become highly specialized. Our basic course gets you from "That looks cool!" ... to "Woohoo!" in 3 days! Check out these Vimeos and see why we are hooked on the sport! https://vimeo.com/148696696 https://vimeo.com/104538804 Prerequisite: None! This Technical Canyoneering Course (ACE-L1) is a beginner to intermediate course which teaches the skills necessary to safely descend canyons as part of a group (being a competent participant and the knowledge to recognize and implement safe canyon practices). This course is designed to quickly get the beginner up-to-speed on basics, to give both the rookie and intermediate canyoneer new tools for his/her toolbox, and will help intermediate canyoneers refine their current skill set! See a list of the TOPICS and SKILLS, Policies, and Testimonials on our website!
