The snowshoeing is fabulous up here in the spring. It’s the time of year we pull out our snowshoes and start exploring everywhere!
As of right now (June 16, 2013), the best snowshoeing is around Tipsoo Lake on Chinook Pass. We love this area and can spend hours exploring. Tipsoo Lake is melting out, and you can often get pictures of Mt. Rainier reflected in the lake. (Gorgeous!) We’ve even gone snowshoeing under the full moon before (coming up June 23) and this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We rent snowshoes right here at Alta Crystal Resort, for a very nominal $20 plus tax per day, including poles. Trust us. Once you try snowshoeing, you’ll understand why it is America’s fastest growing winter sport!
