Ages 18+ Looking for something new, sick of being inside, or already a Snowshoer wanting to have some company then please join us for Intro to Snow Shoeing. Snowshoeing is a type of hiking that involves walking over snow with the assistance of footwear that displaces weight over a larger area. With origins roughly 4,000 to 6,000 years ago. In this 4 week class we will hike 4 different trails, learn trail etiquette, basic snow shoeing techniques uphill/downhill, and enjoy this winter outdoors.
