Snowshoeing is a great low impact aerobic activity. However, there is more to snowshoeing than simply taking a plunge in some untracked snow. Come have some fun in the snow, meet some new people, and learn the ins and outs of the fastest growing winter sport at our Snowshoeing 101 class.
This 90-minute class will start with 30 minutes of instruction where we will cover how to put on and take off your snowshoes, select the proper snowshoe, and dress for the outdoors in winter. After that, we head out on the snow and learn how to get up from a fall, select a comfortable stride for walking and stomping, and turning around. The class will conclude with a guided tour. Location of the hike is TBD based on conditions. All participants will be contacted 48 hours in advance.
The price for this Snowshoeing 101 experience is $30 and includes snowshoes, poles, and a $5 gift Rocktown gift certificate. Class size is limited so don’t delay.
