March 7 March 14 March 21
Following a meet up at the rental center at 2:30 to get equipped with snowshoes and meet the guides, the tour begins. Participants will trek to the bottom of the Vista Express lift, to load last chair at 3:30. This will allow the snowshoers to virtually have the mountain to themselves on the snowshoe excursion. Vista is well named for the expansive views towards Central Oregon the lift provides. From the 6,600 foot level the views of White River Canyon, The South Cascades and beautiful lowering sunscapes await.
The descent along the southern boundary of our resort on Vista Ridge, through Mitchel Creek and back to the lodge. Participants should be in good physical condition, even though the trek is primarily downhill, taking up to 90 minutes.
