About the event
Come join us for a day of uphill travel in-bounds at Snoqualmie! We'll outfit you with gear (included) and then head on up to the mountain to hike up the hill and then descend on a blue square groomed run. We'll finish out the day practicing finding a burried avalanche beacon before heading back to Gearhouse.
