Night-Time Snowshoe Trip
Whenever there are at least 8 inches of snow on the mountains and a clear, moon-lit night, we can get out and enjoy an evening of unique fun by snowshoeing some of the same trails we hike and bike on during other seasons, and maybe even blaze our own trail that night. We will have to navigate snowdrifts, find some open spaces to try running and we'll encounter a few little hills to go up & down. The best part is that it's dark! And the natural world is very different when it's dark....
Snowshoes, poles, waistpack, water & snacks, flashlight and/or headlamp are included on these trips. Participants should wear winter boots (insulated & hopefully waterproof), snowpants if you have them, hat & gloves, and layered clothing that can be unzipped/unbuttoned when you get hot.

This tour is available daily after 5:30pm BY ADVANCE RESERVATION ONLY **
Best dates would be January 10-16, February 8-15, March 9-15 (all around the Full Moon), but other moonlit nights would be decent, too. Closer to these date ranges the better. Since March 12 is Daylight Savings Time, dusk will be one hour later (assume a 6:30 start after this date).
** Note that although times are flexible, there is normally one tour given per day – the first reservation is what determines the day’s tour. Call to find out what tour is going on a specific day, or if you’re planning ahead reserve the trip you want to take! All tours are available "Weather Permitting..."
