Snowshoeing Equivalency Application

Click here if you have sufficient skill and experience with snowshoeing such that you may be eligible for an equivalency badge. This would grant you the ability to register for trips with us without taking a Mountaineers course. If you are sure you can be a contributing member of a group of snowshoers, including assisting with incidents, fill out this application and the relevant committee will review it and contact you.

Basic Snowshoeing Course

This badge represents successful completion of the Intermediate Snowshoeing Course.

Thank you for expressing your interest in getting out on the snow with The Mountaineers! To do so requires either that you successfully complete the snowshoeing course (normally held by branches in the late fall/winter so that trips can be taken while there's snow) or show that you have the equivalent skills, knowledge, and equipment that we expect of one of our Basic Snowshoeing Course graduates. This application describes and starts the process of determining course equivalency.

This application starts the necessary conversation between you and our volunteers. There may be slightly different requirements for the committees at different branches (all of which will comply with our organizational minimum standards for snowshoeing).
