2012-02-19 Snowshoe Hike on the Rigaud Mountain
On February 19th, you are invited to join the Ramblers for a Snowshoe hike which will take about 3 h and will cover 9 km on the Rigaud Mountain. There is a shorter option see below (3.6 km). The main hike is for intermediates but we will accommodate all levels of hikers. Snowshoes and trekking poles are recommended. Dress for the weather, in layers; bring water or juice and have a good breakfast before you come out.
Rendezvous Sunday at 9:00 am for a 9:10 am departure in the parking lot at the end of Rue de Lourdes in Rigaud (this is behind the arena). If the parking area below the sanctuary has not been cleared of snow then we will park in the arena parking area.
We call the trail that we will follow "La 31". You can choose the length of the hike you want to do: 0 to 3,6 km, 4,3 km, 5 km and for the braves: 9,2 km. The climb is 125 meters.
Take the exit off the 40 for Rigaud, when heading west through the town turn left at the first traffic light and follow the arena signs.
Members should have their card at each hike. The membership fees have to be paid by check only.
