Good Day Everybody:
Our snowshoe trip on January 30th on Hollyburn was a great success. We had 14 participants and everybody enjoyed it.
Our third 4TPlus snowshoe trip this year is on Tuesday, February 14th on Mount Seymour. We will meet at 10:30 AM in front of the Safeway store in the Parkgate Mall. The Mall is located at the corner of the Seymour Parkway and Mount Seymour Road. There is lots of parking there. We will carpool up the mountain and start our snowshoe adventure from the kiosk at the far end of the parking lot at 11:00 AM.
On our trip we will go to an interesting mountain cabin and this route will take us about 3/4 of an hour to get there with not much elevation gain. There are some hills but they are not too taxing. The route is not used all that often which will offer pristine conditions and lots of untracked snow. We will go through terrain that is Christmas card perfect with huge snow-covered trees and our route will skirt two mountain lakes. At the cabin we will have a snack break outside and then return along the same route we used to get there. Note we cannot go in the cabin as it will be locked. Please be assured that there is no avalanche danger on this route.
We will be back at the mountain parking lot by 1:00 PM and back down to the Mall parking lot by 1:30. For those who are interested and have the time, we will go to a coffee shop and enjoy a hot drink and some Valentine goodies. Hope to see you there.
If the weather forecast looks like rain on the mountain, I will send out an email to all those who have registered informing them of the cancellation by 7:00 AM.
