Re: [Hiking-and-Exploring-with-Friends] Snowcave building

Davin, maybe we can work together to lead something.  I've been envisioning a day at the Commonwealth Basin, literally a parking lot covered with snow, up at Snoqualmie Pass.  I'd planned on building igloos, staying in them overnight, and then snowshoeing the Commonwealth Basin trail that leads from there the next day.  Probably in January.

I've been there many times (it's a beautiful snowshoe trail I do several times a season) but never overnight.  I'm thinking very family-friendly for this one, and safe: the igloo-building area includes two outhouses, and is a 5 minute walk to Snoqualmie lodge and our vehicles.  Because it is so close, folks can sled in lots of extra equipment if they want.

Just a thought.

To whom it may concern,  I would like to do an over night stay on Mt. Rainier, Paradise, in a snow cave.  My plans were to do a beginner snowshoe short hike then a snow cave building lesson with the option to spend the night.   I want to do this in January, not sure which weekend. I have never built a snow cave although I know the general info. I would prefer to have someone along that has done this before so that I could also learn any tips etc.  If you have done this before and are interested in helping me teach a class, please contact me.  If you are someone that is interested in a beginner snowshoe class or learning to build then sleep in a snow cave, keep an eye out for a January weekend class.
