Submitted by the Event Organizer
Imagine the fun of a day spent backcountry skiing or snowshoeing. Now imagine you don’t have to go back to a cabin or hotel! (wait, what?)
No really! Snowcamping can be a really enjoyable experience–not to mention an important survival skill should you ever get caught in a winter storm.
Just because you haven’t done it before, doesn’t mean it can’t be done: Camping the outdoors in winter is a unique and enjoyable experience, and presents a new set of opportunities and challenges for outdoor enthusiasts.
LEARN ABOUT IT FROM AN EXPERT: An experienced leader from the Sierra Club’s Snowcamping Section (San Francisco Bay Chapter) will walk you through the basics of how to stay comfortable and safe with the right gear and techniques. Learn about selecting and setting up camp, different snow structure options, layering your clothing for maximum warmth, survival essentials, and much more. This way, you can do it safely and you won’t die. Yay!
