MVSTA snowshoe trail passes ($5) are required. People who have purchased a pass for the ski trails, however, can use that pass on snowshoe trails as well and don’t need to buy another pass. Trail passes and snowshoe rentals are available in Mazama at the North Cascades Basecamp, or the Mazama Ski Shop. Reservations are not required; space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and limited to 10 participants. Tours last 90 to 120 minutes. We recommend that you dress warmly and pack a snack and water. Call MVSTA at 996-3287 or email email@example.com for more information.
