Introduction to Snowshoeing at Staalesen Preserve, Troy

Start Date: Saturday, February 02, 2019 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

 

snowshoeSnowshoeing has become one of the fastest growing winter sports in the country. Simply strap on a pair of snowshoes and go on a winter hike or backpack! This class is a great introduction to the sport. We will start with an indoor clinic and focus on the gear selection and the initial skills needed to get on the trails. Then we will hit the outdoors for some fun in the snow and to learn snowshoe techniques, ascending and descending hills and winter preparedness. Discover the joy of winter and the freedom of snowshoeing!  We will send information before the class on proper clothing and gear for this great adventure. Some snowshoes will be available to borrow.

Meet at the parking lot of the Staalesen Preserve on Wynantskill Way in Troy.
