Snowshoeing on Panorama Dome

Do you have Snowshoeing Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • Snowshoeing to the top of Panorama Dome is a great family-friendly adventure with high scenic payoff from the summit and a fun descent.

    Starting from the winter closure at the end of Lake Mary Road, walk up along the Lakes Basin Winter Public Access Corridor on the left-hand side of the road to the green trail system sign at the summer Panorama Dome Trailhead. Blaze your own trail or follow someone else's up and to the right through the beautiful mixed conifer forest to an enormous Western White pine below the open, windswept summit. Views from the top are—you guessed it—panoramic! Descend the way you came or run down the steeper north side.

Avalanche Forecast for 12/09/2018

  • S to SW winds continued to blow through the night. Human triggered wind slab avalanches are likely on exposed SE-E-N-NW facing terrain on the leeward side of ridges, cross loaded gullies and around other features that promote drifting at upper elevations. Be on the lookout for freshly loaded pillows and ribbons of snow and treat steeper complex terrain carefully. Early season obstacles exist! Find out More
