Wenesdays at Western- January 25th
Meeting Location: College Center Parking Lot
Transportation and a sack lunch are provided.
Snowshoes are required for your participation in this program. These supplies can be rented from the Wilderness Pursuits Office, the Alpineer, or Gene Taylors.
Join Karen Immerso for a journey into the beautiful winter landscapes of Gunnison Valley. This outing is for those 50 and better in age who are interested in a walk through the woods with snowshoes as the mode of transportation. First timers are encouraged to participate as beginner tips will be offered and a gentle pace will be set for the group. Participants must bring snowshoes (poles are recommended for balance) and wear warm, layered clothing.
Waterproofed hiking boots or comfortable snow boots are required. Participants should also bring 1-2 liters of water, additional snacks, and sun protection. In new snow, gaiters are recommended but not required.
Karen Immerso, veteran field instructor for Outward Bound in Colorado and former Director of Western’s Wilderness Pursuits program, has many years of hiking, climbing, and instructing mountain skills.
