Part 13, Evening Snowshoe - MARCH MOON MADNESS - Cathernine Pass

Clear weather is forecast for the day before the full moon.....which is perfect because the moon will show its bright little face about 45 minutes before sunset, allowing it to be higher in the sky before the sun leaves us for the day. We will meet at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon (Alta/Snowbird) at 6:00 and carpool up the canyon. We will hike to Catherine Pass which is between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. About half the hike will be on packed ski runs and the other half will be either untracked or following previous hikers.....so bring both Yaktrax/Microspikes and snowshoes if you have both. The temperature should be cool but not cold. Dress in layers. This hike is about 1500 vertical and 2 miles each way. There are a couple steeper sections to go up, but not that bad.

For those interested, we will meet at a TBD location afterwards for drinks, food and socializing.

    Wendy - We will be walking on snow, but it will probably be well packed so snowshoes might not be required. I have committed my extra pair, but I will try to get another set.

    Brandy - The main thing is to dress in layers so that you can add or shed. You will get warm hiking up, but it will be cool while standing around. Other than that, just dress warm and bring some water to drink. Hope to see you there,

      I did have a good time:-) I turned around a little early to make sure my knee could take the descent and the night was a clear reminder that snowshoeing requires strong hip flexors with the wider stance!

    I expect that we'll be back down out of the canyon at about 9:00 or 9:30.

    Hey all
    Do you think we will definitely need snow shoes? If yes once again can I ask to borrow?

    Hi Rick! Afraid I'm not going to be able to go on this fabulous snowshoe as I will be as I will be at my son's lacrosse game. Look forward to catching another hike soon. Have a blast! :)

    This event is also posted on FB. Between that and about 6 other friends coming, it should be a great group.

    March 25, 2013

  • Rick G.

    We'll take you......but we'll take almost anyone ;-) See you there.

    Howdy! New member here - I'd love to attend if you'll have me. I haven't been out on my snowshoes all season and I would like to meet some people who love the outdoors.
