Things you should know...

What Should I Bring?
Polarized sunglasses.  They make it easier to see and provide eye protection. Snow can be very bright! Sunscreen, brimmed hat, a warm insulation layer, snacks for half day trips and bagged lunch for full day trips.  Always have plenty of water along.

What Should I Wear?
Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing.  Mountain weather is unpredictable, so be prepared for rain, snow, sun, cold weather, and wind. You can wear your own waterproof boots if you have them or borrow a pair from us at no additional charge.

What Should I Eat?
Food is important for both half and full day trips.  A light snack for half days and a nutritious lunch for full days.  Water is probably the most important item of all (a good rule is about 1 liter per 4 hour trip).

What Should I Bring?

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Camera 
  • Multiple layers so you can bundle up when cold and shed them when you get hot.
  • A waterproof or water repellant layer is helpful for blocking the wind and snow.
  • A small day pack to carry these items is also important
Do You Stock Any Of These Items?
Yes, we have a fully stocked outdoor supply retail store.

What If It Rains? or Bad weather?
It really doesn't rain in the winter, but If the weather is bad we may have to cancel the trip with a full refund. We will make every effort to reschedule your trip if desired.

Cancellations
If you cancel a trip for any reason up to 24 hours before your trip, you are entitled to a full refund.  We cannot refund for no shows the day of the trip. If weather is bad and we have to cancel there is a full refund.  We will pro-rate an outing for the time you were not able to snowshoe.

Our Guides
Our guides are patient, well-trained professionals eager to take you out on a snowshoe trip.  All our guides are CPR and First Aid certified.  Guides are compensated for their time but happily accept gratuities for exceptional service.
