Enjoy one of the friendliest winter sports for beginners. Join a guide to learn the art of snowshoeing while enjoying the majestic beauty of winter.
We will start the day with meeting at our outdoor gear store in Redmond for a classroom session. We will provide snowshoes and poles to the class members, do a gear check and have a session covering snowshoe techniques, equipment and clothing required. We will carpool from there for our guided snowshoe trip.
