Snow is here! And more is coming!!
Yesterday Outdoor Program staff were in the Hurricane Creek area of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and we encountered several inches of snow on the trail up towards the lakes basin area. Today Outdoor Program staff were out on the other side of the Eagle Cap Wilderness, up Catherine Creek and high up on China Cap mountain, where over a foot of snow graced the summit ridge!
Winter has arrived in the high places of the Wallowa Mountains and the EOU Outdoor Program is excited about this new season. Our equipment rental program carries skis, snowshoes, crampons, ice axes and much more. We will be teaching a variety of winter related outdoor skills courses and will be working with local ski areas to make the winter season accessible for EOU students.
Stop by the Outdoor Program (Hoke 102) to check out what's happening next.
