This trip sells out every year and is one of the MUST DO experiences in Portland! Snowshoeing in the moonlight is a magical experience, perfect for date night, girl's night out, or just a great night with family and friends. Our guides will show you the way to some spectacular view of Mt. Hood and the surrounding wilderness, blanketed by snow. We will provide instruction before snowshoeing approximately an hour. Then we will break for hot drinks/snacks and some stargazing and storytelling before heading back. Take a moment to sit and take in the stillness of the remote mountain environment. This trip is designed for anyone, young or old, any fitness level! Please inform us before registering children under the age of 12.
This guided group trip delivered everything I was hoping for and more! It was an enjoyable, educational, and worthwhile experience. Our guides (Jesse, Travis, & Ryan) were outstanding. Although the scenery was great, I want to emphasize that the guides really made the trip for me. They were capable, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable. In the face of weather and other challenges, they were always professional and able to recommend or facilitate an alternative plan that met the group's goals. I would definitely consider REA for future adventures.
We will provide snowshoe, trekking poles, headlamps, light snacks, hot drinks, a guide, and transportation. Please dress appropriately for the weather (bring layers and a waterproof jacket), wear sturdy and warm footwear (regular hiking boots are fine), and bring a small backpack with a liter of water. The trip will run in all weather, unless conditions are unsafe. We depart from our Troutdale office at 6pm, returning around 11:30 pm.
