On Sunday we went up to Snoqualmie Pass, at Lower Gold Creek Basin. We met Dan and Laura and did some snowshoeing and sledding.
I was rocking this awesome late-eighties snowsuit. It was a hand-me-down from Matt, and it fit perfectly. It came with a roll of duct tape in the pocket.
At first, Max insisted on walking on fresh snow, instead of the easy path of compressed snow. He stumbled a bit, but was having fun.
Also, we brought Hiro The Invisible Dog.
Simkowiaks + Snow = Epic Snowball Fight:
In the far background you can see that I was already back into shorts. I was keeping quite warm just hiking around in snowshoes.
Off to find some sledding…
It was a lot of fun and we’re going back soon.
REI rents snowshoes locally for $20, and a Washington State Snow Pass is $20/day, or $40 annually. I spent two weeks watching Craigslist and found used snowshoes for everyone. The cost was an average of 60.8% the current street price of new (incl. 10% sales tax).
