What to Bring: 

Be prepared for cold temperatures as we will be spending approximately 2-3 hours on the trails and away from our cozy vehicles. Remember to layer up with clothing other than cotton; as cotton will absorb sweat and cause your body temperature to drop. Even though it will be cold, you will be surprised by the work out snowshoeing will provide. Below is a list of items you should bring each week:

  • Winter Gloves
  • Winter Boots–waterproof and insulated 
  • 2 quarts of water 
  • Snacks 
  • Extra clothing 
  • Beanie or other type of hat 
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen 
  • Small backpack
