Lonesome Lake Hiking/ Snowshelter Weekend

Saturday, February 8, 2020 12:00 AM to Sunday, February 9, 2020 12:00 AM

Come join us for a moderately paced hike to stay at Lonesome Lake Hut during a full moon weekend. What a wonderful way to brighten the mid-winter! We will snowshoe across the lake and practice important winter survival skills such as: building a Quinzee snow shelter, a snow cave, a trench shelter, and possibly an igloo. Participants can opt to sleep in their snow shelters or the hut. We will snowshoe to check out the full moon over the lake at night. We will prepare Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast as a group. Full winter gear is required for this event.
