Registration Required Winter is not a time for staring out the window and wishing it was spring! Come join a Beaver Creek Naturalist for a snowshoe hike this winter! It's a great chance to explore the winter woods and get some exercise too! This program is targeted for our older, but active, nature lovers 55 and older. Participants should expect a moderately strenuous outing, over uneven terrain, with a one mile hike. If walking is difficult for you or you have balance issues, you may want to pass on this offering. Wear your winter clothes and boots; snowshoes and instruction will be provided. If needed, snowshoe rental rates are $3 per pair. View This Post
