Family “Night” Snowshoeing

February 26, 2021

(Rain date Feb 27. If no snow we’ll reschedule later in Feb/March)

Snowshoes are not mandatory as rentals are closed due to COVID-19.
We have enough participants with snowshoes who can lead and break the path for the rest of the crew.
Sturdy pair of snow or hiking boots should suffice.
