Notice I said "snow play" and not just snow shoe? That's because Greg and I checked out the White River SnoPark last Friday and saw all kinds of activities going on: hiking, snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, sledding. And we thought it would be fun to open this event up to everyone, to come and do whatever it is you love to do in the snow!
So ladies, bring your friends, sweethearts, children, dogs . . . and enjoy the day! There's a 3 mile loop along the river and through the woods that can be hiked, skied or snow shoed. There are lots of hills along the way for those who want to stop and go sledding. We even saw someone using a blown-up air mattress!
Let's meet on Feb. 14th at the ALC parking lot at 9 or the Mountain Moka lot in Sandy at 9:30. If you just want to meet at the White River Sno Park, we should be up there by 10:15. You'll need a SnoPark pass, gas money, stuff to snack on and/or lunches, water, a camera, layers.
If you are going to rent equipment, please do it the day before. Joe's, Sportsman's Warehouse and several places in Sandy rent snow shoes and skis.
It was so warm the day we went, we wished we'd worn t-shirts and brough sun screen!
White River Sno Park is 4 miles east of Government Camp on highway 35.
