Snowshoes - UPDATED

UPDATE:  The SNC says that the snowshoe hike for 1/5/12 is full and they don't have any more room available for that day.  They are offering additional snowshoe hikes on 1/19/12, 2/9/12, 2/16/12 (for adults only), 3/2/12, and 3/23/12 (not recommended for young children).

I bought a pair of these snowshoes at Al's winter clearance sale.  They were even cheaper in the store than on the website.

So who wants to go snowshoeing with me?

If you don't have your own snowshoes you can rent them from USU ORP, even if you aren't a USU student or faculty member.

Another option would be to join one of the Stokes Nature Center snowshoe hikes this winter.  They are hosting one this Saturday.  Here is the information about it from their website:

Snowshoe Saturday: Animal Tracks
Saturday, January 5, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Utah Master Naturalist Mark Larese-Cassanova leads this family-friendly look at animals in winter. We'll look for tracks, scat, and other signs of what our furred and feathered friends are up to during the cold winter months. No experience necessary, snowshoes and cocoa provided.  Meet at USFS District Office parking lot (1500 East Highway 89).  For all ages.  Cost: $5 donation/person greatly appreciated.  Registration required. For more information, call 435-755-3239 or email nature[at]
