Upcoming on-snow training

Saturday (January 2nd) is our final Activities Training day! The day will be a mock-SnowSchool where Kerry (National SnowSchool Director) and I will take you through a day of SnowSchool. We'll model the 3 Essentials for you as well as many other activities. It will also be a good day for trail orientation.

Dress prepared to spend the day out in the snow. Waterproof clothing, boots, gloves, etc. If you have snowshoes, feel free to bring them. If you don't have any or prefer not to bring yours, there are loads to borrow from the Nordic Lodge. Don't forget to bring a lunch and water bottle. The day should be wrapped up by 4pm at the latest.

We'll carpool from the downtown office (2600 N. Bogus Basin Rd.) at 8:45am. Please don't park in the parking lot. We need to park along Parkhill which is just north of the front doors of the sales office and right in front of an apartment complex.

I highly suggest reading through the Activity and Curriculum Guide on the SnowSchool website before attending this training. This will give you background info. on the activities we present on Saturday. Here's the link to the guide:
