Description:

It's finals time for a lot of folks, and spending a whole weekend in the backcountry isn't always an option. But daytrips are!

This Saturday, I propose we take a break from all that studying and head up to Taylor Meadows to do some snowshoeing. This is a beginner friendly trip; it's ok if you have no winter hiking experience.

The only variable for this trip is that at least 3 people without cars need to sign up or 1 one person needs to sign up as a driver. It’s too expensive to rent a car for less than other 3 people.

Cost of renting a car for 3 people will be about $23. If we get 4 people it will be about $18. If someone else volunteers to drive, we'll have to ask them how much gas money they'd like :)

Assuming the trip works out, Here is the gear you will need:

1. Snowshoes & poles (available from Clubroom)

2. Hiking or mountaineering boots (available from Clubroom)

3. HEADLAMP. Beacuase daylight is so short now, you MUST have a headlamp. GET ONE

4. Warm clothes and ideally waterproof /snow pants or gaiters

5. Hat and gloves/mittens (waterproof gloves are better if you ave them)

6. Food & water

 

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to shoot me an email. Hope to see you!
