Provides students a solid foundation in snowshoeing. Topics covered are snowshoe techniques and travel, winter clothing and gear selection and conditioning for snowshoeing.
Successful completion will allow the student to participate in Easy snowshoe outings. It will also allow an interested student to continue on to the next level Snowshoe II. There are no pre-requisites for this course. Students age 10-13 may take this course if a parent or guardian registers and takes the course with them. Students age 14-17 may take the course without a parent or guardian but must have a signed waiver from the parent or guardian and committee approval. See Tacoma website for further information re: the 2012-13 season and registration.
This is the place to come to get acquainted with easy travel on snow. The course is very laid back and is appropriate for anyone in moderately good health and physical condition. We are now allowing 10-13 yr olds with a parent/guardian and 14-17yr olds either with a parent/guardian or by themselves with parental consent and committee approval. Class consists of one night session from 6:00-9:00PM in the Tacoma Program Center and one full day field trip two weeks later. Just street clothes are all that's needed for the class session and at that point you will get more input on what clothing and equipment are needed as well as where to find it.
