4th Annual Snowshoe Scavenger Hunt

Park in The Spruces Campground parking area.

1. You will be divided up into teams just prior to the event which will be determined by our numbers. A great way to get to know some new people.

2. You will be given a list of items all worth various amounts of points to either find or take pictures of so a camera is essential and needed on this hunt.(You will have items to find-ie: colored ice with money inside-the color will determine the point value, riddles to solve, and photos to take).

3. You will have exactly two hours to either find the items or take pictures of certain items and meet back at the car. Some items on list require you and your group to either pose, act it out, or talk to strangers- heads up

4. If you have done this hunt before there will be a small amount of repeats but mostly this list is all brand new.

5. Depending on conditions snowshoes and/or micro spikes will be absolutely needed.

6. Prizes will be awarded to first and second place teams.

7. We will finish up at the Porcupine to tally up points and determine the winners.

8. Most importantly this is a ton of fun and a healthy competitive edge really does help. Items Needed

Camera or camera phone

Water

A healthy sense of humor :)

    Certainly brought out the creativity in folks on what "finding" the items on the list meant! Good fun. Maybe spread in out a little more next year so more hiking is needed to find stuff.

    Anybody want to carpool from downtown SLC area? I don't have AWD, but I do not think it will be required on Saturday. I am happy to ride with someone else who does have AWD and I'll chip in for gas - just hoping to help keep the air good...

    Can anyone give me a lift from Sugar House? This sounds like fun, but I don't have wheels. Glad to pay for the gas, and I have an extra pair of showshoes.

    January 31, 2014

    • Lisa K.

      A friend of mine, Joe, said he's be happy to pick you up in exchange for the use of your extra snowshoes

      1 · January 31, 2014

    • Lisa K.

      call Joe @ (801)[masked] if you still need a ride - he needs snowshoes...it's a match made in heaven...

      1 · January 31, 2014

  • Moriarty

    Does anybody have extra snowshoes for me to barrow?

    1 · January 30, 2014

    • Mark

      Jenni, I have an extra pair of showshoes, but I need a ride to the event from Sugar House (my vision is too poor for a driver's license, but I get around fine on foot and enjoy a good riddle/puzzle). Let me know if that's convenient.

  • Bart M.

    Where is everyone getting their snowshoes? I was thinking about renting some from the Sport Chalet.

    January 28, 2014

    • Dawn

      You can also get them from REI or Ski and See--the ones at See and Ski are pretty good and mention our group and they will give you a discount. Snow is in the forecast!!
