Learn how to snowshoe with other active women and put your new-found skills to work exploring Northfield Mountain's snowshoe trails. Snowshoeing is fabulous exercise and incredibly easy to learn. We'll begin indoors with a brief session on equipment and then venture outside exploring some of our favorite trails as well as the natural history of this special season. Add a new activity, and perhaps some new friends, to your winter repertoire. Tips on equipment and clothing, invigorating exercise and sharing hot chocolate and tea around our wood stove will complete the afternoon. It is proven that people learn faster and have more fun in a supportive environment. Here's an opportunity you won't want to miss, to learn from and with other women. Please note that we will be snowshoeing for two miles over moderately hilly terrain (elevation gain of 300'), and no prior snowshoeing experience is necessary. Bring water, a trail snack, wear light-weight waterproof pants, warm socks and dress in warm layers that can be shed as we get moving. Warm footwear is essential. All levels of experience are welcome for this moderately strenuous outdoor adventure. The program meets inside the cozy, pellet-stove heated yurt behind the Visitor Center. For women age 16 and older. Please call to pre-register at 1-800-859-2960. Free, $18 with snowshoe rentals.

We already know what scientific research shows; that moving, learning, socializing, and spending time outdoors promotes robust memory and health while replenishing the spirit. Snowshoeing is fabulous exercise and incredibly easy to learn. This winter ramble on the trails at Northfield Mountain will include all four healthy habits while we search for signs of historical human uses and the animals that now make their homes on the Mountain. The camaraderie of other active adults and a hot cup of tea or cocoa around the woodstove will warm us up after our adventure. No prior snowshoeing experience is necessary. If there is not enough snow for snowshoeing, this winter ramble will be a hike through the surrounding field edges and forests. Bring water, a trail snack, wear light-weight waterproof pants, warm socks and dress in warm layers that can be shed as we get moving. Warm footwear is essential. The program meets inside the cozy, pellet-stove heated yurt behind the Visitor Center. Please pre-register ahead by calling 1-800-859-2960. Free, $18 with snowshoe rentals.
