I did inquire about the need for avalanche equipment. The slopes where
we will be snowshoeing are all less than 30 degrees, so the chances for
avalanche are minimal. I recently updated my wardrobe's cold weather
clothing, so I'm pretty well set gear-wise with nice, insulated ski /
snowboard clothing. Snowshoeing in and of itself tends to generate a
lot of body heat, so I'll wear layered clothing and add / remove as
necessary. This hike will begin at around 7,800 feet and end at about
8,600 feet where the yurt is located. For a 3-mile hike, that is not
too steep an elevation gain.
I need to remember to take lots of photos!
