Fun on the Snow; Snowshoeing with the Friends Part II

Due to the popularity of the first snowshoe meetup, I thought it would be a great idea to make another time to accommodate more people. The friends are only limited by the amount of snowshoes we have. :) There will be more subsequent snowshoe trips this winter as well.

Snowshoes are provided. We'll meet at The Beaver Pond trail-head prior to the hike. This will be 3km long and fairly flat terrain. Bring warm clothes and footwear, water, and snacks for the trip as well. Cameras and binoculars are optional but recommended as we will likely see wildlife along the trail. Normal national park entry fees apply.

These are public events. You don't need to be a member of the Friends to attend.

Thanks very much,

Ian

    Not sure if I can make it tomorrow. I have developed an eyelid infection. If it doesn't clear up overnight, I won't be able to make it.

      Which time do you prefer? It would be great to know which time you will be meeting with us. :)

    Hi! I would love to be able to join in on this trip and try some snowshoeing! Unfortunately, I don't have a vehicle at the moment. Does this group ever organize carpooling?

    November 12, 2013

    • Rick W.

      Stephanie, perhaps if you post your general location one of our members will volunteer.

      The next time I schedule a snowshoe event which should be in early December, I will plan ahead for carpooling. Thanks very much for your input. :)

    Ian, can you comment on the length of the train and terrain? Some people, like myself, may only be able to manage the shorter trails.

    November 14, 2013

    • Ian B.

      I adjusted the description slightly. It is 3 km and flat terrain for the most part. :)
