Winter Hiking and Snowshoeing 101

Just because it's Cold and Snowy doesn't mean we stop the hiking season. We Adapt! As a matter of fact some of our most fun trips are winter trips. And in a country where we have 6 or more months of wintry climate we make the most of it. This is an extension of the Hiking 101 seminar but feel free to join even if you haven't done that seminar.


Some of the topics we will cover are:
Winter Trip Ratings
Clothing and Equipment
Hypothermia and Staying Warm
Books and Maps etc.
Snowshoe 101

and more.

This seminar is offered through The Slow and Steady Adventure Company.

    It looks like we'll have to offer this more than once a month. I like to keep the group size smaller for more group involvement etc. I will do another seminar within the next few weeks.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
