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:
VENMO: sheryl mcglochlin
PAY PAL: sheryl@liveandthrive.com
RSVP in advance via text to reserve snowshoes, 801-278-5313, leave your name and how many pair you need.

I'll also help you learn:
What type of snowshoes to buy that best suits your needs
Where to purchase snowshoes
Difference between Snowshoes and Spikes and when to use them both
A few of my favorite places to snowshoe that are nearby

How to prepare for all kinds of winter weather conditions

TIP: It's smart to rent snowshoes until you decide if you really like the sport. Within a few hours you'll know if you want to invest in a pair of your own.

My Snowshoeing experience:
16 years ago I started developing a passion for not only hiking but snowshoeing. The winter months can be rough if you don't take the opportunity to get outdoors. I have also observed over the years that some of the most incredible beauty only appears during the cold winter months in the snow. I find great satisfaction in sharing my passion for snowshoeing which has motivated me to teach, lead, organize, promote and guide over 2300+ hikes and snowshoeing outings over the years, domestically and internationally.

New events and adventure trips are continually being added to my website, liveandthrive.com. Check it out and join us often!
