Reminder: Next Trip – Snowshoeing!

Hello Scouts and Parents;

Seems like we just finished the Klondike and we’re back out into the winter weather.   Our next trip will take us to the Windblown Ski and Snowshoe Touring Center for some Snowshoeing on the Wapack Trail.   We have Scout “luxury” accommodations in a “heated” cabin.  The Windblown currently has 3-5 inches of base on their trails, lets hope for a nice mid week storm!

Any parents interested in going, there is plenty of room. The cabin sleeps 20.  Please contact me at the meeting or before if possible.

Thanks;

Mr. Valante

Reminder for this Wednesday(2/5):

Reminder for Trip:

  • Since this is winter camping, consider your layers – wicking, wind and warmth, and extra set of dry clothes (extra socks, hats, gloves & layers) to put on after.  This will be very important to your comfort that night.  There is a short walk to the cabin, so back packs are necessary.  Day Packs will be needed for the trail.
  • While the cabin is heated with a wood stove, there is little insulation and it will still be a bit cold – winter bags.
  • If you do not have a pair of snow shoes, please bring $12 for rentals.
