Details

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 02 and 03 Jan from 6:00p to 9:30p and one field session on 06 Jan all day.  The course cost is $25 for PPG members and $35 for all others.  There are also rental costs from local gear shops 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.  



 Agenda: Class 1 - Handouts, Sources of information for planning, Avalanche Awareness, What to wear, What to bring, Winter hazards, Conclusion - what to think about
