COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 7.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,800 ft

Meeting time 7:45am at the parking lot for the Silver Fir Lodge of  the Summit Central Ski Area of Snoqualmie Pass.  This is a satellite parking lot so a map will go out with an email the night before the trip.  The location is between exit 53 and exit 54 off I-90.  No restrooms available here, but Travelers Rest should be open and it is in between Exit 52 and Exit 53 closer to Summit West. Please be on-time.

The Mountaineers discourages carpooling with people who are not within your home or your pod.

This will be a conversational-paced, relaxed snowshoe trip with the goal of getting to the viewpoint of Radio Mountain and to find the 2 warming huts "just for fun"; however, this trip is for those who can handle the elevation gain AND for those who also enjoy the sights.  Breaks will be short so no-one's toes get too cold, but those who prefer to charge summits will need to be on "chill-out" mode and those who are shutterbugs will need to be super quick for positive, "keep warm" wintertime group dynamics.

Each participant should be comfortable driving in winter conditions and have a vehicle with chains that is capable of safe travel in winter conditions.

Masks must be worn over the mouth and nose when within 6 feet of others.

Leader permission. Please confirm  1) your capability for the activity and the driving, and  2) you vehicle's winter travel capability.

There is a possibility that the roster could be expanded.
