League to take snowshoers on adventure

Get some exercise in the snow.

A snowshoe hike on a section of the Tahoe Rim Trail is scheduled the first week of December. The North Shore hike will be a light-to-moderate trek through Tahoe Meadows, a scenic spot on Mt. Rose.

The guided hike is free and being organized by the League to Save Lake Tahoe, Americorps and Tahoe Rim Trail Association.

“We usually get between 10 and 20 people,” said Catherine Parsons, communication coordinator at the League. “Our hikes are especially popular. We try to limit the group to 20 people to reduce impact (on the land).”

People who reserve a spot on the snowshoe hike will meet before they head out for a lesson on the Tahoe Rim Trail.

At the meeting, Tim Hauserman, author of “The Tahoe Rim Trail: A Complete Guide for Hikers, Mountain Bikers, and Equestrians,” and Sara Holm, a program coordinator for the trail, will make a 45-minute multimedia presentation. Coffee and refreshments will be available.

The group will car pool to Tahoe Meadows. The League recommends people dress warmly and pack water and a snack. Village Ski Loft at Incline Village is offering a 50-percent discount on snowshoe rentals.

The event will be Dec. 7 starting at 9 a.m. with a meeting at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center in the Trepp Room. The center is at 938 Incline Way and houses the Parasol Foundation. The hike will last about two hours and end at noon.

To reserve a spot, call Andrew Barter at (530) 584-1660 or e-mail him at andrew@keeptahoeblue.org.
