Fresh snow!

January 30, 2014

We are back in business! 🙂

In the past few days we got around 16 inches of new snow and as a result we are resuming the snowshoe walks this upcoming weekend, Feb. 01!

For those of you that already made reservations, we look forward to see you!

If you’d like to reserve a spot in one of our walks, please call the office.

Thank you!

 

 

Unfortunately, due to the low snow levels at Snoqualmie Pass, all our Snowshoe Walks are cancelled until further notice. We will update this website when conditions improve. Maybe it’s time for everyone to work on their snow dances! 🙂

Please call the office for further information.

Thank you!

Unfortunately the snow conditions this week are still not optimal for the snowshoe walks.

All walks for the weekend of January, 18th are cancelled. Please call the office for more information.

Thank you!

Due to the current snow conditions, walks scheduled for January 12th are cancelled.
Please call the office for further information.

Being Prepared

December 20, 2011

With the holidays approaching and the snow increasing, we all are excited to get out on the snow and have fun.

One thing that is very important before venturing into the backcountry during winter is to make sure that you are aware of the challenges that the environment presents and how to stay safe.

Avalanche Knowledge is one of the key things to know before heading out. A few weeks ago, Komo News aired a short but very interesting report on avalanche training. The video can be seen here.

On a side note, our volunteers are busy with the final preparations before the snowshoe program starts. This is a great time to call our office and schedule a snowshoe tour with us! Smile

Cheers,

Forest Service Volunteers

Tour Snoqualmie Pass

December 12, 2011

Get outdoors and learn about winter ecology snowshoeing on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest January through March.

No experience is necessary and the Forest Service provides snowshoes. Participants should wear layered and insulated clothing, hats and gloves with sturdy, waterproof shoes or boots, hats and gloves.

To offset the costs of the program a donation of $10 per person is suggested for all tours except the extended hike and photography outing at Snoqualmie Pass, where $20 is requested.

Yes, you read it right! We are getting ready to host another season of snowshoeing, fun, and learning opportunities about Winter Ecology!

Stay tuned to this blog, we will post updates as we get everything ready for this Winter Season.

Cheers,

Forest Service Volunteers
