(Feb 14) Snowshoe/hike with GLS at Caribou Ranch, Nederland

posted Feb 10, 2010, 5:31 PM by Brian Duchinsky
For those of you who aren't snowriding this Valentine's Day with Paul Brown at Loveland Basin (umm, and why not?), you are cordially invited to join the Gay and Lesbian Sierrans (GLS) for an day of snowshoeing/snowhiking on Sunday, Feb 14.

This will be an easy to moderate snowshoe or snowhike. We plan to go to historic Caribou Ranch, near Nederland, for an easy paced 4.7 mile hike. There is negligible elevation gain, perhaps three hundred feet from the starting elevation of 8,600 feet. The trail is packed snow with some small portions of bare ground or ice. So either snow shoes or yak trax is appropriate footwear. The locale is in a beautiful setting and you will see open meadows and old mining sites. This outing will be half day and is good for beginners and people who want to enjoy a nice, social trip. Please bring outer layers (it can get windy), sun protection, water, and food for lunch.

Contact Phil at to sign up.

You do not need to be a member of GLS or the Sierra Club to participate.

GLS is an activity section of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Sierra Club (1 of 7 GLBT sections, and the only one outside of California).  For more info, visit

Happy trails!
