This is a major achievement for accomplished snowshoers, and a trip you’ll remember for a long time. The solitude and wilderness experience that you get out of a Three Sisters traverse is astounding. You just won’t see many people wandering this deep in the winter woods. There are high lake basins, craggy passes, deep forest creeks, and some of the most substantial groves of subalpine old-growth forest I’ve ever seen. Some of the trees on this route are massive, an amazing accomplishment at this altitude, so close to timberline.
