  • If you want to feel confident camping and hiking on snow, this is where you start.
  • For 2018, you can choose from 1-day snowshoe clinics, 2-day snow-camping overnights, or the all-inclusive, 3-day weekend outings depending on what you need to learn!
  • New for 2018, we have added a unique way to learn your snowshoeing safety skills by basing 2-days of instruction out of a historic Sierra lodge on Donner Summit! There will be daily classroom talks and outdoor skills clinics followed by lodge-cooked meals, a hot tub, and roaring fire for evening stories!
