Event description

Description

Join this epic, women's only snowshoe adventure in the heart of the Rocky Mountains with Life's 2 Short Fitness and Switchback Chics!

This highy scenic hike begins in a dense evergreen forest, moderately climbing until the path gradually opens up to reveal a peaceful valley encirlced by towering jagged peaks.
As we hike onward, we approach the remains of the historic Boston mining camp and an impressive view of Fletcher, Northeast, Crystal and Pacific peaks. We can explore and investigate the ruins and take warmth in a remaining shelter, taking in the views while enjoying beverages and snacks.

This hike is for all levels (snowshoe experience) however we recommend a moderate fitness level as the hike length is 5 miles round trip with just under 1000 feet of elevation gain starting at an altitude of about 11,000 feet.

Fee includes:
- Snowshoe + pole rentals
- Carpool coordination
- Pre-hike clinic
- Beverage and snacks
- Resources* + digital photo album

We kick off each with a short clinic where we will discuss:
- Techniques for snowshoeing in all types of conditions and terrain
- How to efficently use your poles
- How to asses terrain and avalanche safety

*Resources include:
- Info on what type of snowshoes you need (size, fit and for different types of terrain)
- What to wear/pack (checklist prior to hike)
- How to prepare for hiking at high altitude
- Recommendations for the best places to go on your own

Your guides:
Our leaders have years of backcountry winter hiking and mountaineering experience and are certified in Wilderness First Aid and Avalanche Awareness/safety and rescue
Each hike will have 1-2 trailblazers, women who have experience snowshoeing who will help set different pace groups to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all levels!
