A free snowshoe event with hundreds of demo snowshoes for adults and children. In honor of MLK weekend, even the National Park entrance fee will be waived. The day includes guided hikes, snow activities, outdoor gear displays, and free giveaways. It's part of the Estes Park Winter Festival going on all weekend. Bring food and water and dress for the weather.
We'll meet at the Park & Ride at 9:00 am to arrange for carpools and plan on being up in Estes shortly after ten in the morning.
I'm thinking we can meet for carpooling, but other than that I'm thinking everyone is pretty much on their own. I won't try coordinating any group get together while we're there. Let's just have fun and do our own thing. Feel free to arrange your own impromptu meetings, if you want. My number is[masked] if you need to reach me.

Snow is no reason to stop hiking. Though your favorite footpath may be covered in deep powder, why pine for spring when you can slip on a pair of snowshoes and get out on the trail all winter long? Snowshoeing, after all, is simply hiking in winter.
