A fairly easier mountain(s) to snowshoe is Porter and Cascade. You can snowshoe up to Porter (4050’) and traverse over to Cascade Mountain (4098’). On a clear day you can enjoy a nice view of the snowy mountain range, especially from the fire tower. So bring a thermos of hot chocolate or coffee and enjoy the views. Total distance is about 13km for both Porter and Cascade. It took us a total of 4hrs to do without breaks.
Trailhead: Route 73 near Cascade Pass/Pitch off
