February Pack Outing: Snow!
Hyak Sledding Hill
Saturday, February 3 9:00am-11:00am
Pack 428 is headed to the mountains! Let’s all go and have some fun sledding at the Hyak Tubing Hill!
This groomed sledding hill located off of I-90 exit 54, near Snoqualmie East, Hyak is a Washington State Parks snow play area, and is not affiliated with the Summit at Snoqualmie ski resort. The area is groomed up to five times a week (depending on conditions) but is not supervised by rangers or snow patrol. You can also go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on the groomed trail. Tip: The parking lot can fill up. Go early or late in the day to avoid crowds.
Directions: Take Exit 54 off I-90 past the summit. Follow signs to the John Wayne Trail, just off to the right. This is the same parking lot as we start our Iron Horse Trail bicycle ride!
Fee: No admission fee, but you’ll need to have a daily Sno-Park permit for your car and a daily or annual Discover Pass; OR a Seasonal Sno Park Permit plus Special Groomed Trails Permit sticker, without Discover Pass. ; there is an electronic pay station where you can buy one-day Sno-Park or Discover Pass permits. Bathrooms are the only onsite amenity. Note: This Sno-Park gets VERY crowded; go early or late to avoid peak times.
What to Bring: This is a bring your own sled or innertube park. It is just a hill that is groomed for sledding! The kids will have to climb with their sleds or innertubes, so expect some very tired and happy scouts after a couple hours of sledding. The pack will provide hot cocoa and a light snack/granola bar at the end of the event. Let’s have some fun!
