  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Elevation Gain: 500 ft

Meet at 10:00 am at the coffee stand in Randle on the SE corner across the street from the Mt. Adams cafe.  From there we will caravan to White Pass.  If it is snowy at lower elevations, we might stop at Hwy 23 past Packwood and play there for free.  Otherwise, everyone will have to pay the fee for White Pass Nordic Center ($14-20).

This trip is designed to be combined with an overnight at Three Volcanoes Cabin, but overnight is optional.

We will do snow shoe or ski based on group preferences and conditions and do both if we can!

There is a yurt for eating lunch and warming up.

Parking is free but can be very crowded and requires quite a walk.  We can carpool from Randle if we want.
