Jan 12 - Jan 15



After a 3-year break due to Covid and other considerations, Snowcamp will be back this coming January.
The last Snowcamp prior to Covid was the 24 th annual one. Covid interrupted plans for the 25th edition
for a couple of years. We considered letting it just fade away entirely, but the question “Whatever
happened to Snowcamp?” kept popping up, and we decided we couldn’t let it end with a whimper.

Announcing the 25th Anniversary Snowcamp Grand Finale – January 12-15, 2024 at the Sahara Creek
Horse Camp (between Elbe and Ashford on SR 706). For those further away, that’s in Washington State,
near Mount Rainier National Park.

It’s one last chance to be cold and miserable with like-minded fools, and to do the things Snowcamp is
known for. This includes (but is not necessarily limited to): Chicken fried bologna, beer artillery, deep-
fried turkey, a BIG fire, more food, attempts to reach Paradise (you can take that however you want, but
we try to ride there), more food, all manner of motorcycle-related foolishness, more food, and (did I
mention?) A BIG FIRE! Area 51 may make an appearance again, if we can still figure out how to put it
together. And, this being the GRAND FINALE, there may be a surprise or two, you never know with

Officially, there’s a chili feed Friday evening and a pancake breakfast each morning, but there’s always
lots of other food. We never know exactly what since that depends on what’s brought, but we’ve never
gone hungry. We now have both an infrared and a deep-fat turkey fryer, so there will be a comparison
fry-off for sure. The event turns into a giant potluck, food contributions are appreciated but not

The event itself is FREE. However, the Horsecamp venue is a Washington Dept. of Natural Resources
(DNR) property, so a Discover Pass is required for all vehicles. It is $11.50 for the day and $35.00 for the year.Experience indicates that someone will come through and check for them. The fine for not having one is $99, so it’s much better to get the pass
rather than the ticket. Passes are available online and at local vendors. Get more info at www.discoverpass.wa.gov.

We don’t care if you come by bike, car, motorhome or Starship Enterprise, we just want you to BE THERE! The Horsecamp has lots of room. Since it’s close to Mt. Rainier, there are also numerous lodging opportunities for the less-hardy available in the general vicinity.

What to bring – warm clothes, tent, camper, or other sleeping facility, food, drink, and (if you have a vehicle with enough room) some firewood. Firewood will be provided, but we can always use more – we like BIG FIRES.
