As of this posting only 40 spots left--go to this link to secure your spot and register. With the snowshoeing hikes it is always good to have this knowledge before you head out.
The site will tell you if the event is full. I will be attending the Ladies Night Avalanche Awareness Event since I can not make this one -it is on December 2nd and will posted as a separate event.
