Palm Springs Tram Snow fun with Spark Friend Murphy Hiker

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I enjoyed the snow up the Palm Springs Tram heading up with several friends including spark friend murphy hiker. This is a great way to get exercise and have fun.
We went for a short hike, poor guy kept falling. I am taking him back when it warms up so he can get a little farther up the trail.

His first time in the tram.

After snow shoe rest.

    That looked hard to do in the snow...always thought it would be fun to do snow shoes or cross country skiing! Those winds, cold and in the snow, you are is MH! I'd be falling too! At least the snow cushions you! emoticon
That would be fun to do the tram! emoticon
Thanks for sharing! Glad you enjoyed! emoticon

    Looked like a beautiful area. One day I'd like to live in an area where I have to drive out to experience snow, then leave for home - with the snow staying behind. ;)

    I'm not a snow fan either, but I know it's a novelty for you guys. Sounds like a fun day!

    The weather was not bad, the very next day was sunny & the snow was melting. I went back two days later & it was hot. Much of the snow was gone. We were lucky to get that itty bitty storm.

    As I watched this I thought....I haven't been in the mountains hiking in the snow forever. But I'm not sure you sold me on it....looked tough & I know what its like to gather your gear, dress appropriately, get there and then go. But glad you had fun.

    Wow! Awesome video!! Somehow, I just don't associate snow with Palm Springs!! Is this your first snowshoe experience? I was thinking of getting some seeing how much snow we got this year :P The wind looks as bad as it does here!
So nice to hear and see one of your videos again!!

    I love to snow-shoe. We did that as a family up in Canada. We had a blast!! I think we were at it for 3 hours. A great work-out too!! Hugs, Moni

    He actually had a blast. I had been trying to get him to go all season long. Finally he agreed then thanked me for insisting he go. He thought the venue was gorgeous and might even buy a pass to keep going.

    The weather was just fine for hiking but we did not go very far and had great fun. The snowfall and wind was refreshing that is why he kept eating the snow. We don't live in the snow, we have to drive up to it or in this case take a tram up. Snow fun is a treat for Southern Californians because it is so short lived.

    I'm glad you wrote snow shoe cause I couldn't tell from the video what was on his feet, looked like bad weather to go hiking in the snow (well too cold for me anyhow).
