On this Full Moon snowshoe tour, we will be immersing ourselves in the forest with the use of snowshoes under the stars and moonlit sky. Without a doubt, snowshoeing through mountain landscapes under a full moon is an unmatched experience. There is stillness, peacefulness, and silence that only exist under the stars, allowing for an opportunity to tap into wilderness unattainable during the day.
After strapping snowshoes to our boots, we begin our moonlight snowshoe tour walking through the shadows of tall Pine and Fir trees gaining access to large alpine meadows. As we pass through these meadows the night sky above opens allowing piercing moonlight to illuminate the snow. Snow crystals on the surface catch and reflect moonlight creating an ever-changing flickering show of light as we move with each and every step.
Due to the large meadows and open sky, various constellations can be seen with ease making this one of the best places to star gaze in Lake Tahoe. With a high-powered laser, your snowshoe guides will point these constellations out during an interruptive astrology talk of the night sky above. Find your astrological sign in a constellation with us!
As we venture back to the vehicles our moonlight snowshoe tour comes to a close. In total, 2 hours will be spent walking roughly 2 miles in distance over beginner snowshoeing terrain. So join us on a unique mountain experience on our guided Full Moon snowshoeing tour and night sky interpretive talk. An experience that you won’t surely forget.
