Yahoo, it’s snowing in the mountains, and we’re just a week away from our first snowshoe run on Saturday, December 6th!
We’ll meet at Backporch Coffee Roasters in Century Center (70 SW Century Drive) at 8:30am. Backporch is one of our sponsors; grab a coffee and pastry to show your thanks! Unless otherwise posted, we’ll meet here before each of our Saturday runs. Carpool leaves Backporch at 8:45am. If you will not be driving to the run, please leave your car in one of the farther back parking rows to leave room for business patrons to park closer while we are gone.
The run: starts at the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center and follows its groomed “Common Corridor” out to Cascade Lakes Highway; then we’ll head west to the Todd Lake turnoff and back. This run has been our go-to first run every year. It’s a simple 2.6 mile out-and-back, and an excellent place to get a feel for snowshoe running. Before we get to running, we’ll talk a bit about etiquette, as we’ll be sharing the trail with skiers, and probably some snowmobilers on the highway.
A SnoPark permit is not needed this week. Other runs will require a permit to park. If you have questions, check our FAQ or post a comment below.
Get ready for a winter full of gorgeous fun on the trails with friends. See you soon!
