Winter Outdoor
Adventures

Dates: COMING SOON

Winter is not a season. It is a celebration

We are excited to celebrate winter this year. Many of you have asked about our winter adventures. We will be offering our favorites including Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing and Snow Hiking with crampons.

We are also offering custom or private winter adventures. Please email Carlyn to set up a discovery planning call.

As always, we will do all the planning and provide daypacks to borrow and adventure packs to keep.

You will need to provide your own sports equipment. Here is a list of gear we love:

Snowshoes – Yukon Charlies are our favorite. However, there are many great options out there.

Cross Country Skiing – we recommend renting from REI as they have a great selection of rental equipment for any winter adventure. Find your local REI store.

U UZOPI ice cleats crampons. We use these all winter long be it on a hike or walking across an icy grocery store parking. They are easy to attach and help prevent falls and injuries.

Pricing: TBD depending on the adventure
