Marten Creek


Basic Snowshoe - Marten Creek

No grand mountain top views but a nice snowshoe that winds continually through the trees giving a real back country feel. A well defined path so there is little of the hard work of breaking trail.

Meeting place will be arranged via email prior to the trip depending on locations of the parties signed up. Jay and I are coming from the south end and have room for 3 people plus gear if any of you are on our way north. We will plan on leaving Auburn at 7 am with the plan of being on the trail by 9:00.

As always, location subject to change if the avalanche danger is too high or weather conditions are very unfavorable. This particular snowshoe does not have much in the way of avalanche hazard, so trip will most likely be a go!
