The emails started flying Friday morning. A week after the end-of-course final trek, the graduates of the Wenatchee Outdoors Snowshoeing Class were eager to put new knowledge to the test. Destination: Peak 6,056 beyond Clara Lake.
Despite the early-winter, splendid-snow conditions that we enjoyed around Central Washington, it’s been six weeks since measurable snow fell on the peaks surrounding Blewett Pass. Now the north-facing ski lines off Diamond Head and Windy Knob are tired and scarred from over-use. No matter. The Blewett Pass environs offer a warehouse of other interesting ski tours that few bother to visit.
For the third installment of the WenatcheeOutdoors Snowshoeing course Tom Janisch presented on avalanche awareness. Here are notes from the class, with info on avalanche statistics, avalanche mechanics, evaluating hazards, slide warning signs, and field tests for snow stability.
Winter outdoor adventures demand more thinking than most summer activities. Winter travelers need to be better attuned to snow, weather, and terrain.

Many casual hikers stay indoors for winter, but we're offering a course to give you the snowshoeing and outdoor skills to get you out walking in the woods all winter long. As part of the Subaru Outdoor Series, learn the basics of equipment, winter safety, and navigation to become a self-sufficient snowshoer.
Our Silver Falls outing had the prestige of being our farthest away and most challenging Subaru Kid’s Club outing. Did that hold anyone back? Heck no! We had quite a few families make the hour-plus trek up the Entiat Valley to enjoy the gorgeous, popular hike....
Our hiking classes and outings are part of the Subaru Outdoor Series. The series strives to ‘hook’ people on the outdoors. We want to get you (whether you are a beginner, newcomer to the area, parent with kids, or a retiree) over any obstacle preventing you from enjoying our local trails. Our trails are one of the great assets of living here.
The WenatcheeOutdoors Forum has just launched. Come take a look.

Be part of our outdoor conversations and the local outdoor community.
