Backcountry Snowshoeing

REGISTER

Snowshoe in the heart of the Sierra Nevada’s with our team on a day trek or a snow camping overnight. Our guides will teach you best practices for back country travel, gear and equipment training on how to stay warm and dry, avalanche transponder beacon and probe training, emergency response protocol, fire creation, basic cold weather survival training, and how to read the snow pack and weather.

Snow Camping for Corporate Events and Private Groups:  After the snowshoeing day trip and class, learn to be comfortable and confident snow camping. You will be sleeping in one of the oldest and effective forms of movable shelter, tipi’s. These tipi’s are anything but primitive however, with the use of modern technology they are lightweight and extremely durable capable of withstanding high winds and heavy precipitation. Equipped with wood burning stoves, you’ll be high and dry and at home in the outdoors. Our sleeping pads and bags will keep you warm and off the snow at night.  In the evening, you will learn cooking and camp techniques for making snow camping overnights fun and comfortable.
