Meet at Longmire at 10am, we will wait there for the gate to open. Bring chains and park pass.

We will be exploring Alta Vista and Dead Horse Canyon areas. We will be going over basic snowshoe techniques, some basic navigation examples, and perhaps a senerio or two about troubles on the mountain, and what to do. The pace will be relaxed, and everyone will have a chance to lead the group and select the best route. There will be plenty of time for questions  along the way for those who might have them. See you out there!
