Mt. St Helens Winter Camping Weekend
March 17 - March 18| $400
Join us for a two day winter camping trip on the snowy slopes of Mt. St Helens. We will snowshoe up and camp at 4,000 ft. under the stars. Ever wanted to learn how to build an igloo? This is your chance! We will also be teaching winter shelter building and the skills you need to stay warm and safely overnight in the backcountry.
Why should you join us? Because St Helens is the best winter camping near Portland, Oregon! Spectacular views and experiences, no bugs, and no crowds — perfect conditions if you want to really enjoy nature and a large dose of peace and quiet.
Price includes transportation to the mountains and the following gear: tents, stoves, snowshoes, trekking poles.
Students are expected to be in reasonable physical condition and prepared for 2 full days in cold weather, camping on the snow.
We begin early Saturday morning and return home late Sunday.
