Winter and cold weather add unique challenges to any camping or backpacking trip. Join the Outdoor Recreation instructor team and learn how to make a comfortable home for yourself out in the snow!

We'll start at the trailhead with a quick intro to snowshoeing and then head out on our winter wonderland overnight trip. Our goal is to teach safe snow travel techniques and practical winter camping skills for use in every cold weather situation, from car camping to long-distance backpacking.

Even if you just want to test your mental, emotional and physical being....come on out and join us on this adventure!
