Snowshoeing - Member Inviting Others

A group member (not an organizer) would like to go to Flagstaff Nordic Center this Sunday to go snowshoeing on some easy trails. They have trails that allow dogs, so she will be taking her dog with her.

She discovered on their web site (http://www.flagstaffnordiccenter.com/) that they are offering $5 day passes for the snowshoe and cross country trails this weekend and wondered if anyone would like to join her.  Anyone going on this trip needs to either bring their own gear or rent gear for themselves (she is not responsible for getting you gear).

Group lessons for beginner cross country skiers are offered at 11:30 a.m. and there is an additional cost for the lessons.  If members are interested in that class they need to make arrangements for themselves.

She is willing to carpool and split the cost of gas, but she will be bringing her dog.  Please send her a message if you are interested in this activity so you can work out details quickly.

Here is the website for the nordic center:

    What a great day to get outdoors and snowshoe! I had a wonderful time, and we had some great conversations on the way up and back.

    I'm fine in your jeep so long as there's no smoke or intense perfume. Dogs are fine.

    Is dog wrestling allowed? :-)

      Definitely no smoke or perfume! Dog wrestling is allowed, but my dog is so sensitive--he doesn't like to wrestle with humans. :-) Email me at [masked] so we can make plans. I think I can fit the three of us plus the dog, and I'll put towels down so you guys don't get covered with hair. Maybe we can all meet somewhere off the I-17.

    I could drive. I have an Outback, which is good in the snow. (AWD). We could put down some blankets for the dog.

      He's very friendly. :-) Email me directly at [masked] if you want to make plans to meet somewhere and carpool.

    Maybe the three of us can figure out the best way to carpool. I'm ok with following you guys if you'd prefer not to ride with the dog. My Jeep does well in the snow. Christine and Ross, just message me directly so we can make plans, exchange numbers, etc.

    Just an FYI, they do rent gear at the nordic center, though it's best to call and reserve in advance. I'm just looking for some casual snow fun with my dog, with some exercise thrown in. I was planning to leave the valley at 9 a.m. but can make it earlier if anyone joining me wants to make the group lesson at 11:30. If anyone wants to go on their own, I'd be happy to grab a bite or drinks in town afterwards. Flagstaff will be getting a foot of snow this week, so let's go play!

      Sarah do you want to drive up together? I have no gear I will need to rent.

    As I figured, I wouldn't get out of another engagement. Would certainly like to go with more notice.

    I just wanted to get a little snowshoeing in and see how my dog does--he may not last long anyway. I'd definitely be up for going again in March. I'll let one of you guys organize and host it. ;-)

    great idea,, i have my own snowshoes but unable to make it this weekend,, maybe again in March?

    February 20, 2013

  • Randy from M.

    Marking yes, but more than likely will need to drop and go the following weekend due to short notice in this trip. I'm from the Northwest and did a lot of snowshoeing both day trips and over night trips. Excited to find someone else that enjoys!
