Winter In The Mountains Snowshoe (WIMS)

New this year, WIMS is based on the successful introductory WIM course with a focus on snowshoers! Lectures are shared with WIM, but mountain trips are separate and cater to snowshoers. On WIMS, one hostel-based weekend in the mountains is included that will consist of day trips to practice basic skills in the outdoors. A second weekend focusing on winter backcountry camping may be included if there is enough interest from the group. No previous snowshoe experience necessary. Cost is $90 plus accommodation fees, gas, other weekend costs. Limited to 10 participants. Lectures start January 9th. Register by completing this PDF form and sending to Jackie at
