WHAT TO BRING
If there is good snow in the fields this will be a snowshoe event: Poles are recommended, but not necessary.
If all the snow is gone by Friday, we will make this a hike on the trails but the trails will still be hard packed snow/ice so you will need something for traction, so you will need to bring your traction devices for your boots (icers, yak-trax etc.)
• Wear supportive hiking boots with good tread. Hiking poles are recommended but not required.
• Bring water and snacks.
IMPORTANT COVID REMINDERS
The club’s Covid-19 Safety Guidelines will be observed. Masks at the start and social distancing. The park requires people to wear masks if using the washrooms.
