6:30 am departure to Stevens Pass.

During this optional field trip we'll review and practice the skills taught at the Basic Snowshoe field trip. Experienced instructors will be on hand to review technique and share ideas on how to effectively teach it to others.  As time allows we will go over other topics as determined by questions from the participants.

January and February are busy times for our volunteer instructors, and we plan to keep this clinic as short-and-to-the-point as possible.  Though we can't commit to a precise schedule, we are going to try to be done by lunchtime.  The tentative schedule is as follows:

  • Assemble/review the day/hike in - 1 hour
  • Review/practice - 3 hours (rough estimate)
  • Hike out -  30 minutes

Clothing and Gear: Come dressed and equipped for a day of snowshoeing.

The clinic is tentatively scheduled for Grace Lakes (near the Stevens Pass Ski Area) but may change depending on snow conditions.
