This 1 hour course is the best, hassle-free, quick and easy way to perfect your snowshoeing skills.

IF YOU NEED SNOWSHOES, RENT FROM ME!

This class/outing is designed to help you feel more comfortable in snowshoes.
It's also an excellent pre-requisite for our regular snowshoeing outings held every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings throughout the winter.
All abilities are welcome to join us.
It's an individual experience in a fun social setting with others who love being active outdoors during the winter.
I own 19 pair of quality MSR Snowshoes that are available for rent for $10/pair/outing. These are only available for my outings and classes.

Pay me in advance on VENMO or PAYPAL if possible.
IF not, pay in person.
If you pay in advance but need to cancel at the last minute, you’ll receive a credit.
Find me on:

The difference between Snowshoes and Spikes and when to use them both

My Snowshoeing experience:

I have a passion for being active outdoors, especially during winter months when cabin fever and increased darkness is an issue.
I find a lot of satisfaction in helping others including myself be active outdoors!
For 16 years I’ve been instructing, leading, organizing, promoting and guiding over 2300 snowshoeing and hiking outings and events domestically and internationally.
New events and adventure trips are continually being added to my website, liveandthrive.com. Check it out and join us often!
