Winter Hiking Series (Training)
Annual Winter Hiking Series (Training)October 26-27, 2013 & Weekends Through Dec. 21
Winter Hiking Training for Experienced 3-Season Hikers.
Winter Hiking Series
This program includes lectures on hike gear, equipment, energy management, emergency prepareness, group safety, weather, and winter conditions. Starting in the mid-Fall, before you need full winter gear, it shows you what to buy and why with discussions of the advantages of various types of equipment. It is not necessary to buy specialized winter gear before the start of the sessions ... other than Micro Spikes or Stabilicers which are mandatory for the start of the series.
The first Saturday session is lectures and discussions as we get to know each other and show you the necessary equipment for later in the course. Sunday we will have our first hike, rain, snow, or shine.
