Few experiences can compare to stomping across freshly fallen snow on a pair of snowshoes. This activity is an excellent way to relax and get exercise at the same time! Hiking across the snow take on a new meaning when you construct your own handmade pair of snowshoes! The Conservation Board is holding a snowshoe making class on Saturday, November 21 beginning at 1:00 p.m.
Styles available include Ojibway, Huron and Bearpaw. Each type has an advantage in different conditions, but all produce an exceptional quality product. The material cost for the class is $150.00. A kit includes frames made of white ash, nylon lacing and bindings. When completed, you will only need to varnish them annually to keep them in shape for a lifetime. The investment of time and money in the process produce a product that is a source of pride as well as long-time use.
The kits will need to be ordered by November 3!
