Guided Snowshoe Expedition

Explore a nearby mountain and experience the wonders of the winter forest. This is a great way to get some exercise, get off the beaten path, and discover the wonders of winter. We'll pick a nearby hike based on conditions and group ability. You'll learn about winter backcountry safety and equipment and enjoy stunning mountain scenery.
