Hi all - Thank you so much for all the help so far as we prepare for our trip to Steamboat! I've booked a 2-mile guided snowshoe tour for the morning after we fly in. We'll have been in town a little less than 24 hours by that point.
Although I am active and in reasonably good shape, I'm definitely not used to exertion in that kind of altitude - we're only a few hundred feet above sea level here at home. Will 2 miles be too ambitious that early in the game, with so short an acclimation period? We will stop for lunch, so I assume the hike will be split into roughly 1-mile chunks.
Thanks for your input!
