Winter Trails Day Is Coming Up Soon

The 16th Annual Winter Trails Day is coming up in just over a week – January 8th, 2011. There is what they call the “anchor sites” where due to larger crowds various snowshoe manufacturers (MSR, Atlas, Tubbs) and more show up. These sites are:

  • Echo Lake – CO
  • Estes Park – CO  (Jan 15, 2011)
  • Fort Snelling State Park – MN
  • Kirkwood – CA
  • Liberty Mountain – PA
  • Mountaineers Snoqualmie Campus – WA
  • Soldier Hollow – UT
  • Weston Ski Track – MA
  • White River Snow Park – OR

There are many other places (often ski resorts or outdoor stores) sponsoring a day, just with less fanfare. Check here for all sites in a number of states, ranging from Wa to WVA and beyond! If the state has a ski area you can expect to find one to attend.

I have gone to the one at Snoqualmie Pass, Wa before and it was an enjoyable trip. It is a cheap and easy way to get the family out for a few hours – and to try out new gear. Our local one has REI, OR and Marmot Mountain Works showing up as well!
