VetEx Snowshoe Meet-Up 2 Mt.Yale

VetEx and Team Rubicon Snowshoe Group

VetEx will climb Mt.Yale (14,420) feet Saturday the 2nd of February. This will be our second snowshoe of the season.  The Mt.Yale snowshoe will be intermediate in difficulty and any bad weather will make the summit an even greater challenge. If you have never climbed a Colorado 14er before, this snowshoe is not for you. If you have been working up to this and think you are almost there, then come on out.      Snowshoes sponsored by Kahtoola.
