Participant Information

While there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of snow close to home, there's lots in the Joffre Lakes area - and right from the parking lot! 

Let's meet at 7:00am at St. David's and carpool up to the Joffre Lakes parking lot. I was there the first weekend of January and it was no problem driving right to the trail head with a 2-wheel drive car, then enough snow to strap on the snowshoes right away. We'll hope for the same conditions for our trip. 

Beginners are welcome; this is a good trail if you're trying snowshoeing for the first time, a little rusty, or just enjoy a relaxed adventure!

This trip may be cancelled due to rain or poor visibility but will go if it's sunny, overcast, or lightly snowing. We'll decide the Thursday before. 

If you need any additional info, particularly if you're a beginner and are wondering what to wear/pack, feel free to shoot me an email or text.
