Snowshoeing Event
Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 10 am
Information including the event location, etc. will be sent out in early February. Includes a lesson, approximately one-hour nature hike and a bonfire afterwards with coffee, cocoa and s’mores.
Kerri Kolstad of “Wahoo! Adventures” will provide snowshoes, poles and lead the snowshoeing lesson. Cost is $25/person for snowshoes, poles and the lesson. A $5 discount if you provide your own snowshoes and poles. Sign-up is required as we have a limited number of openings left.
At left is a photo of the snowshoe gear that will be provided.  These are the metal-framed snowshoes that are lighter weight and more streamlined than the old style snowshoes making it much easier to walk in snowshoes as it is more of a normal walking gait. Questions and to RSVP, contact John Hodler.
