TRIP DESCRIPTION: 
The Cascades in the winter is a snowshoeing paradise and none more so than Commonwealth Basin. The proliferation of snow keeps the trail ever changing. Soft blankets smooth the landscape forming snow bridges over creeks, and making stumps look like soft bumps in the landscape. Distance: 8 miles, roundtrip; Elevation Gain: 2300 ft. 
Must be at least 14 years old to participate. All minors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
 

We provide: Transportation, snowshoe, poles, gaiters and instruction/guide.
