For details please call the leader as listed; you will be instructed as to what you need to bring, meeting location and time. This is a transit outing, and we will be reaching the refuge via light rail and a short walk. We will be able to enjoy the beautiful visitors center – open only one weekend a month – in addition to snowshoeing. Miles are recorded as “Round Trip.” The outing will automatically become a hike if there is no snow. Looking forward to seeing you on March 5! PLEASE CALL ANDREA IN ADVANCE SO WE CAN ARRANGE FOR SNOWSHOES AND ADVISE YOU IF THERE ARE ANY CHANGES.
