Winter lovers and nature nerds! Join ICL staff member Josh Johnson for a beautiful 1.5 hour-long snowshoe hike on Galena Summit. In addition to the fantastic views, you will learn about how snow and ice have shaped the landscape in the rugged mountains of central Idaho. Josh has a master’s degree in geology and several years experience as a naturalist and interpretive guide.
The snowshoe hike is approximately 2 miles long with minimal elevation gain. The hike will be at high elevation (>8,500 ft) so we ask that you consider that before registering. Bring snow boots and warm layers for all kinds of weather. You may bring your own snowshoes or rent them beforehand.
We will meet at Galena Summit at 1 pm. Carpooling details and additional logistics will be worked out when you register. If you plan to attend this hike, be sure to bring the following:
- Plenty of water (2 liters recommended)
- Hat, gloves, and sunglasses
- Warm layers (down jacket, fleece, etc.)
- Rain jacket/outer shell
- Snow boots
- Snowshoes — rentals are available at Backwoods Mountain Sports or Elephants Perch in Ketchum.
This snowshoe hike is limited to 10 participants. Call (208-726-7485) or email Josh to reserve your spot.
