Beginner Snowshoe - John Wayne Pioneer Trail (winter)

***Trip cancelled due to Winter Storm Warning and heavy rain below 3500 ft*** Hope for early season snow for us to try out our winter gear in a moderately-paced snowshoe with little elevation gain on a weekday when the Pass is less crowded.

We will meet at the North Bend Park and Ride (331 W North Bend Way, North Bend, WA 98045) at 9am and carpool from there.  ****Note:  this  is a change from the original meeting location.****

Hoping for some good December snow in Snoqualmie Pass, this trip is aimed at novices and students taking the Basic Snowshoe Course.  We will move together as a group at a comfortable pace, with plenty of time to adjust new gear and practice with snowshoes.  Distance will be no more than 4 miles.  We will need drivers with AWD/4WD and/or chains, along with Sno-Park passes.  More details on this closer to the trip.
