Strenuous hike with 3000ft elevation gain. Around 9 miles.
^^^THIS COULD BE YOU
Ever wondered what it’s like to strap a board to your foot and climb a mountain? Missing the frigid winter cuz you’re going to school in LA? Want to walk through a wintery wonderland with desert and ocean views?!? Join us on a snowshoeing trip to the summit of Bighorn Peak.
Never snowshoed before? NO PROBLEM, we’re here to help! We’ll get you all set up with gear as well as snacks and transportation. The hike itself is -strenuous- and snow conditions/shoes increase difficulty quite a bit so previous hiking experience is definitely required. Expect a haul of a hike fueled by zesty jokes, summit yodeling and several pounds of chocolate covered espresso beans.
