Winter Trails Day - Mt. Hood
This past Saturday was Winter Trail Day and saw a great event put together at the White River Snow Park on Mt. Hood. Hundreds of people showed up for a free snowshoe test available from Atlas, MSR and Tubbs. Portland based Keen Footwear was on hand giving away free pair of socks and REI managed registration while providing refreshments. With temps in the 40's, no wind and clear roads, the area was also full of other recreational users including tubers, sledders, skiers and walkers (and of course plenty of dogs). For those people interested in snowshoe racing, the White River Snow Park will be home to a USSSA National Championship qualifier on Saturday, January 24 put on by Kevin Foreman and his team at XDog Events.
