PLEASE READ: How to be prepared for your snowshoe

You will be outside for extended periods of time depending on the pace you are running, without access to a warming place, please be prepared in the following ways:

  1. Layering of clothing is most suitable so that you can remove layers if you get too warm. Polyester or Wool are recommended for their ability to wick moisture and perspiration away from the body and to retain insulating values even when wet. 

  2. Check the weather report before the outing to ensure you are wearing appropriate gear for the conditions. A cell phone is NOT an adequate safety plan. Plan for additional warmth if you get lost. 

  3. Recommendation for how to dress when heading out:

  •  Long underwear or thermal-wear, tops and bottoms to act as a base layer.

  •  Snow pants

  •  Long sleeve T-shirt or light sweater

  •  Heavy sweater

  •  Winter jacket

  •  Wool socks

  •  Mitts/Winter gloves

  •  Toque

  •  Waterproof, winter rated, insulated boots.

4. What to bring:

  •  Snacks or fuel depending on length expected run, time of day and your dietary requirements.

  •  A drink. If you are bringing water or another cold drink, put some thought into how you will keep it from freezing if the temperatures are very cold. A good trick is to put your hose close to your body.

  • Cell phone (THIS IS NOT YOUR SAFETY PLAN! CELLPHONES DIE IN THE COLD AND FAST)

  • A backpack

  1. Be sure that your snowshoes are well maintained and in good working condition prior to showing up. 

  2. Complete your signed waiver form with you to submit. You will not be able to participate without it.
