About this Event

There is so much beauty in the winter season, its time to breakout of your den and see for yourself! This Snow Camping trip will be a fun fill weekend of creating, exploring and building. We will snowshoe in about a mile with our gear loaded onto pulks (sleds for hauling gear). We will build a variety of snow shelters igloos, dugloos and snow trenches for our night in the snow. Yes, we are sleeping on the snow! You will also learn basic backcountry camping and cooking techniques.

Friday Evening: We will meet & greet; pack our gear and put our pulks together. No overnight on Friday.

Saturday Morning: We will return and set out to Wy'east for our overnight adventure.

Sunday Afternoon: We will return to Portland.

This trip is a great opportunity for all experience levels to enjoy snow camping and gain knowledge and confidence. This event is open to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous , People of Color) as well as queer and trans folx. We are reserving half of all the spot for BIPOC folx so you will notice our multiple ticketing options when you register.
