This will be a beginner-level snowshoe outing in the Paradise area.  This may be to reflection lakes if conditions are good (note: depending on conditions I may select an alternative location, possibly near Snoqualmie Pass).  Exact route will be determined by group fitness and hazard assessment.  Pace will be easy in order to keep the group together.  Distance will likely be 6-7 miles, with a target elevation gain of no more than 500-1000 feet.   If the trip is relocated, there may be the possibility for interested participants to use ski gear.

If I get additional leaders, I may expand trip capacity.
