What:

Don’t let winter get you down. Escape the inversion and gray skies and join other Draper residents on a winter hike.

Snowshoes and poles will be provided along with information from your guide on the area’s history, flora, and fauna. Sign up soon as the class will fill up fast!

What to Bring:

 Be prepared for cold temperatures as we will be spending approximately 2-3 hours on the trails and away from our cozy vehicles. Remember to layer up with clothing other than cotton; as cotton will absorb sweat and cause your body temperature to drop. Even though it will be cold, you will be surprised by the work out snowshoeing will provide. Below is a list of items you should bring each week:

  • Winter Gloves
  • Winter Boots–waterproof and insulated 
  • 2 quarts of water 
  • Snacks 
  • Extra clothing 
  • Beanie or other type of hat 
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen 
  • Small backpack
