Winter snow is here in the Sierras! What better way to experience the feeling of the Christmas season than by being in and playing in snow? A day snowshoe hike to Signal Peak (Ogul Peak) in the Tahoe National Forest is being proposed. The summit used to host a lookout station until 1934 for the Central Pacific Railroad. Today it hosts communications towers. Be assured that you will be rewarded with great views of the Yuba River Canyon and the Sierra Crest ( http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/153659 ). Total round trip distance is an estimated 6.6 miles, with 2,400' elevation gain, making this hike moderately to very strenuous on snowshoes for most. Snowshoes and hiking poles are absolutely essential for this hike. This hike, however, will be easy-paced, with frequent breaks and photo-taking opportunities. Bring $$ for your carpool driver; drinking water; lunch; snacks; snowcap or hat; winter gloves; sunscreen; and warm layers. The group size is limited to 20 individuals. Severe weather conditions, or the requirement for vehicles to be equipped with snowchains for travel on the highway will necessitate canceling or postponing the event.
