Description: Snowshoeing is as easy as walking but much more fun. You burn off the winter blahs as you follow a well-laid trail or break your own in the endless powder-fresh snow. Snowshoeing is an activity that is accessible to everyone. It takes no technical ability and with Fit Frog you can pace for pleasure as you pounce through powder or relax and enjoy as you follow the beaten track. You learn how to get up and down hills, to pace for endurance and enjoyment, and how to choose safe trails that suit your fitness level.

Snowshoe Hike Distance/length: Rated (AL/MOD), 5-8 km with hills and powder pouncing: About 4 hours on the trail and crazy carpet

Carpool Option: When possible, carpooling will be arranged from the meet place.

What to Bring: Please read through the what to bring list.
