Mt. Hood Snowshoe 5

Snowshoe on the snow covered trails around Oregon’s tallest volcano! Weather permitting, we’ll head up to one of the many amazing snow-covered trails on the east side of Mt. Hood, where we’ll snow shoe through snow-capped trees and admire the best views of Mt. Hood. Snowshoeing takes a fair amount of energy, but it is great exercise and doesn’t require any previous experience. This trip is a great way to explore the snowy mountain you can see from campus by escaping to this beautiful winter wonderland.

Pre-Trip Meeting

College Outdoors trips have a Pre-Trip Meeting (PTM) prior to the trip to help you prepare, which takes place at the Sequoia warehouse on the Graduate Campus.

At this meeting you’ll meet the trip leaders and other participants, learn more about the trip activity, location, and schedule, and be given a packing list of everything you need for your trip. The trip leaders and Sequoia staff will then help you find and borrow anything on the packing list that you’d like to borrow. We have high-quality outdoor clothing and equipment, and it’s all free to use for your trip!

If you miss a Pre-Trip Meeting, check your email for important info you missed.
