Location

Meet at 7:30 in Woolly Mammoth at light pole AA

Stop in Georgetown Visitor Center.

Drive 70 miles to Vail Pass Summit.  Park in west side lot opposite the visitor center.  Bring $14 for driver.

Snowshoe 2.5 miles to Jay's Cabin for lunch on the porch. Start elevation = 10,600, top elevation = 11,250.  The scenery should be great.

The forecast looks good at this time.  This is Winter in Colorado and most of trail is in the open so be prepaired for wind and cold.  Wind resistant outer clothes, face mask and goggles might be good.

There will be a short, optional social at the Kum & Go after we return to Woolly Mammoth.  Be prepaired for a long day due to the long drive distance, the length of the hike and the modest pace of your leader!

This snowshoe is more strenuous than some RMOTHG outings.  Call me if you are unsure.
