Seattle Snowshoeing

9:30 AM

Ash Way Park & Ride, Lynnwood


When visibility is good, the views from Artist Point are hard to beat. The track follows alongside the ski area, leads up to Austin Pass, and rises further up to Artist Point.

Avalanche risk can be mitigated with good terrain choice, but this is not a trip suitable for high avalanche danger days.
NOTE: Priority goes to Seattle Backcountry Snowshoe Skills students.

This trip is ideally timed for Seattle Winter Camping students (and instructors) who intend to stay at the Baker Lodge on Friday evening before the Winter Camping field trip.

It is also a qualifying trip for Backcountry Snowshoe Skills certification. This is rated as a Moderate trip, so ice axes are required. If time and conditions allow, we may do a bit of ice axe arrest practice.

Anticipate the possibility of returning to the parking lot/lodge after the sun sets (5:32 PM). Have headlamps ready!
