While many of our members were able to participate in the recent introduction to winter hiking and backpacking program that was offered by the AMC, some missed out because the program filled-up so quickly.
If you didn't get into the class and are still looking for some information about winter hiking, backpacking, and camping I would suggest that you check out some of the educational programs being offered at many of the local REI stores.
Click here for a complete listing of the programs that are available.
You like to camp, but have only tried it in the spring, summer & fall? Join the experienced REI winter camping experts to learn what you need and what to expect when camping in a winter wonderland. They will cover how to plan, how to stay warm, how to select winter appropriate gear and what to expect when setting up camp and during your overnight. Winter camping is a new experience that is a must-do that keeps you outside all year long!
