Welcome to the group Anita! The format of this group is very casual. Anyone can post a date, time and place for a snowshoe or x-country trek. The intent is to open up a means for snowshoers and x-country skiers to find others who enjoy these activities. The fee to keep the group open is $72 each 6 months. If the host of each event collects a $2 donation from participants we should have sufficient funds when the subscription needs to be renewed. Looking forward to adventures in the snow!
