The Big Four Ice Caves Snowshoe Event (First timers Only)

  • to
  • Aurora Village Transit center

    1524 N 200th St, Shoreline, WA (map)

    47.774197 -122.340530

  • I have a silver VW Golf with a bike rack and have room for 3 peeps

  • But this destination is scenic and perfect for beginners.

    You have to be able to walk easily a long distance.  Snowshoes will change your gate and makes it more of an exercise

    If you have never had any snowshoe experience this would be the hike for you.

    If you would like to hone your basic skills and/or endurance... come along.  But keep in mind that the pace is slow.  If you cannot snowshoe at a slow pace, wait for a more advanced event.

    Round-trip measures 5 miles and has an elevation gain of only 200 feet.

     HOW TO DRESS: 

    Winter clothing (layered) and water proof hiking boots.  At backpack with snacks, water, sunscreen, extra cloves and sun glasses.

    WHAT TO BRING:

    Snowshoes can be rented at either REI or Second Ascent in Ballard.  I will notify the attendees by Friday morning if the event is a go or has to be cancelled due to lack of snow.  

    MONEY FOR THE DRIVER TO SHARE GAS

    PLEASE BE COMMITMENT FREE

    I noticed a misunderstanding. I was asking the attendees to check their datebook to update the RSVP so that the waiting list has a chance as well.
    The event date is Saturday, March 8th

    I am willing to drive. I have a guest that wants to ride with me, if that's okay, but I still have room for two more people. Just let me know if that works.
