Olympia's parks department is offering an "Intro to Snowshoeing" trip to Mount Rainier National Park on Saturday.
Experienced park staff will help participants learn the basic skills to make snowshoeing easier and more enjoyable. With about 140 inches of snow on the ground at Paradise, there is plenty of terrain to learn this winter sport.
Participants will need to bring their own snowshoes. The trip is for people 12 and older. The cost is $49 per person.
The trip will depart from and return to The Olympia Center parking lot. Saturday’s trip will be from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
