Join us for a weekend of women's only snowshoeing, exploring, and fabulous food in Sequoia National Park. Snowshoeing is easy and a wonderful way to be in the mountains in winter. If you have never tried it before, we will teach you-- it is easy and just like hiking! Sequoia National Park is one of America's best National Parks with activities year round and amazing sites, including Giant Sequoia trees. Each day, we will be outside from about 10 AM to 3 or 4 PM. We will start each day with a hearty breakfast before heading out. After our adventures in the snow, well then come back to our comfortable lodging to recap the days events, enjoy fine food and great camaraderie.
On Day 1 we will offer a snowshoe lesson for any women looking for instruction or pointers before heading out into the Giant Forest to snowshoe by the General Sherman Tree – the world’s largest tree. Day 2 we will explore more areas near a beautiful meadow, all under the majestic trees. This trip is designed to accommodate beginners and there is an early turn around option each day. Join us for this great women’s snowshoe adventure!
A great getaway for women who love to be active but don't want to camp.
Minimum 4, maximum 12 clients; balance of $440 due by 12/6/14

We will depart the San Francisco Area at 9 AM. We will drive south towards the park and stop in Fresno for lunch before continuing into the National Park. We expect to arrive at the Hotel no later than 4 PM for check in. After checking into your room, you are free to explore the area on your own or sit by the fire. Tonight we’ll have a delicious dinner and discuss the weekend’s plan. (Lunch)
This morning we have breakfast and head for the Giant Forest dressed for the snow. We’ll spend the first part of the day on a snowshoe orientation lesson getting comfortable with our equipment. Weather permitting, we will have lunch on the trail, then spend the rest of the day snowshoeing around the Giant Forest, visit such sites as the General Sherman Tree, Tunnel Log, Moro Rock, and Crescent Meadow. You’ll be surprised how quickly you pickup snowshoeing – and how much fun it is to move through the dry Sierra powder! Before leaving the Giant Forest we will stop at the Visitors Center to see the exhibits on the Giant Sequoia Trees and stop by the gift shop for souvenir shopping. Then we’ll return to the hotel for hot showers and enjoy sitting by the fire before our dinner as a group. (Breakfast, Lunch)
This morning we enjoy a hearty breakfast before heading back out the snow. Today we explore another part of Sequoia National Park and snowshoe through open meadows and under pine trees and giant sequoias. We’ll also spend time identify animal tracks in the snow such as chipmunks, rabbits, foxes, and other native animals. After lunch, we’ll return to the hotel and begin our drive back to San Francisco. We’ll plan to arrive back into the San Francisco Area no later than 7 PM.
