During the ski season, a Sunday Winter snowshoeing outing will be held most weekends in a wilderness area or park near the city.
Terrain will vary depending on the location. Most of the wilderness area activities will be restricted to fit beginners and experienced members. Depending on snow conditions, we will be snowshoeing or hiking (in case of no snow) for about 3 hours.
Bring lunch, plenty to drink and warm clothing.
The exact location of each outing, the type of outing and the coordinator will be posted on the website and also sent out via the Updater and by email to registrants as they become available.
PLEASE register online for the outing if you intend to come and indicate if you need a ride or can offer one.
You can also contact the skiing coordinator directly. Online registrants will be updated by email regarding any last-minute changes.
The Club now has four pairs of snowshoes available for club members and guests through the generous donation of Mountain Equipment Coop. They are MSR Denali Classics (rigid polypropylene) with 4” or 8” tails. They are suitable for either sex in most weight ranges (90-225 lbs+), fit almost any boot style and meet most snow conditions. They are easy to use and bind.
To reserve them, a $50 refundable security deposit is required (cheque only, payable to the Outdoor Club of East York) and the member is responsible for picking up and returning the snowshoes promptly. There is no charge for their use. Snowshoes can be reserved by contacting the skiing coordinator.
There are eight of these great trips in the Calendar already. Check the Calendar regularly for new additions, updates and other important information.
For all types of trips, please check the Calendar and Updater for new additions, as well as changes, cancellations and last-minute availability prior to going to an event. In addition, trip leaders will make every effort to contact members who have registered for any event to let them know of any change to that event.
