FRESH Powder Snow! Since this is an evening outing, bring a headlamp (mostly to help you put on your snowshoes) Meet at our regular 6200 South meeting place. We will drive to a snowshoeing area just a few minutes away. There is no need to drive into the canyon. All are invited to this FREE 1-hour snowshoe outing, especially those who have never snowshoed OR want to practice valuable snowshoeing skills. This is an excellent pre-requisite for our regular snowshoeing outings. Free instruction is offered to anyone who wants to learn. Those with snowshoeing experience are also invited to attend.

What we're about

Welcome to our Outdoor Adventure Group, established in 2003, almost 15 years ago. We are the most consistent hiking group in Utah, with hikes every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning of the year including holidays with no membership fees!

When you join us you'll become familiar with our amazing outdoor playground, near and far! We hike a wide variety of trails throughout the year. Some are easier, some are more moderate or strenuous. It never gets old since new people join us each week. Changing seasons and weather patterns also add to the mix and keep us alert and on our toes! We are a kind, caring, friendly bunch who love being active outdoors. Some enjoy a shorter outings while others prefer a longer hike. There really is something for a wide range of interests.

Besides local hikes please join us on several adventure trips, near and far, and other outdoor activities other than hiking. Since we’ve been around longer than this meetup website has, we've established ways online for people to find us so the RSVP count on Meetup is never correct. There are generally more people attending our outings than what may appear.

I rarely change a hiking location once it is posted, however, due to weather, road, trail and/or canyon conditions beyond my control, I reserve the right to make changes at our meeting place at the last minute. If you want to meet us somewhere other than our meeting place, contact me via text prior to the hike at 801-278-5313. Hikes are rarely canceled. I hope you join us soon. Thanks for learning more about us. Also visit our website at LiveAndThrive.com (http://liveandthrive.com/)
