Snow Moon Snowshoe Hike

Saturday, Feb 4: Snow Moon Snowshoe Hike. Glistening snow, a chill in the air and the crunch of snow under your feet, this is what you have to look forward to while we celebrate the rising of the full Snow Moon. Snowshoeing under a full moon is simply magical. This introductory level outing is perfect for those whove never tried snowshoeing as well as those who are longtime enthusiasts. The leader will cover techniques to help you safely traverse in an alpine environment while exploring the beautiful Sandia Mountains. Sponsored by the Military Outdoors Program and is open to everyone. This hike is rated as moderate and is approximately 3.0 miles round trip with 300 feet of elevation gain. Meet at the Sandia Crest parking lot at 5:00 p.m. and well hike along the crest for views of the setting sun, the full moon and the city. Participants must be in good physical condition and tolerate high altitude. An all-wheel-drive or four-wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended. Required clothing and gear list will be provided a week in advance. Children 14 years and older with parent or legal guardian are welcome. Appropriate Covid-19 protocols will be observed. No dogs.
