3. Lunch, snacks, water
4. Warm clothing, extra gloves/mitts
5. Warm footwear
6. First aid kit, snowshoe repair kit

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTEICE: This is a winter outing and the group has to stay together and keep reasonable pace to stay warm. There will be no long breaks to wait for stragglers, due to low temperatures and possibility of frost-bite and hypothermia. Please do not sign for this trip if you are not able to keep up with the pace or you will be endangering the entire group.
ABOUT THIS TRIP AND FUTURE TRIPS (please read):
As on my previous trip, this will be combined effort between Slow and Steady and another group. Rather than cancelling the trip if there are only 2-3 participants from Slow and Steady whose ability is unknown to me, and with permission from Slow and Steady, I am combining more experienced group with new folks from Slow and Steady until core group of off-trail snowshoers within Slow and Steady is developed.
Off trail snowshoeing needs a strong and dedicated core group of enthusiasts capable of breaking trail. I will be calling combined trips to the end of this season and throughout next snowshoeing season to try to gauge interest and capability of off-trail snowshoers within Slow and Steady. Please note that each group will sign their own waiver.
