Learn the gear, maintenance, safety and entry level techniques for this entry into the winter wonderland for many people and a common activity in the winter schedule.  This is also a wonderful way of beating the ever rising resort lift ticket fees and crowds.  There will be two classroom sessions in Colorado Springs on 6 and 8 Jan from 6:00p to 9:30p and one field session on 11 Jan all day.  The course cost is $20.  There are also rental costs if you don’t own the gear.  A general fitness level to go on a full day snowshoe trip is required for the field session.  The first classroom is the same as the BC Ski class.  The target audience is someone new to snowshoeing.
