Dependent on snow.  May be postponed. You must have participated in a cold-weather campout before…

We will be departing from the Big 5 parking lot at 4:00 AM Saturday morning – be on time.  Make sure that you have everything on the packing list, a sack lunch & drink for Saturday and a daypack to carry your personal gear in while traveling.  Pack you’re snowshoeing clothes in your daypack not your backpack and we will change clothing at the Mammoth Lakes Visitor Center. Do not wear your BSA uniform.  The trip fee is $100 which includes transportation cost, breakfast in Mojave and pizza dinner Sunday evening. In addition we will be stopping at the Keough Hot Springs.  You will need a bathing suit and towel and the admission is included in the trip cost.

Make sure before we leave that your bindings are adjusted to fit your boots and that your snowshoes are tied together securely for transport.  We will return Sunday night by 11:00 PM at St. Marks Church.  We will contact parents on the way home to give a better time estimate of our arrival in to Santa Barbara.

Scouts will be cooking by patrol for Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast and lunch and each patrol will be responsible for this food. 

Drivers are needed and chains/cables will be required for all vehicles – including 4 wheel drive. Now is the time to start checking your gear to make sure you have everything on the attached packing list. Your personal safety and the safety of our troop depends on you bringing all the equipment on the packing list and staying dry.  Contact Asst. Scoutmaster Weakliem if you have any questions.
