snowshoe - west uintas

The area off the Mirror Lake Highway east of Kamas has many snowshoe touring opportunities. The forest and mountain scenery is great. We will travel on a route where there is low avalanche risk, I still recommend bringing snow safety equipment but will not require it. The trip will be in the NTD+ to MOD- range (around 5 miles round trip and 1500 ft elevation gain). The exact trip will depend on group interest and weather / snow conditions. There is a $6.00 Mirror Lake Highway recreation fee. The fee is covered by interagency passes such as America the Beautiful (Senior) pass. Non drivers are expected to contribute to the driving expenses. Because of a longer drive to get to the trailhead, the trip may extend into the mid to late afternoon. I welcome experienced participants that want to go on a shorter trip and are willing to arrange their vehicle travel Expect cold weather. We will depart from the meeting place at 0845.
