Candlelight & Moonlight Snowshoe, Ski, and Hike Events 2019

Enjoy an evening hike, snowshoe, or ski along a trail lit by the flickering flames of candles or lanterns, or by the glow of a winter moon.  It’s a great time to spend with your sweetie and/or family or heck, bring everyone.

Events are scheduled in January and February 2019.

……Please note we’ll post additional events on the calendar as they come available!!!

 

For the second year our shop is hosting a Thursday night moonlight snowshoe hike starting at 6pm.  Hikes will take place at various location throughout the Fox Valley, and run through the end of February, or as long as snow allows.  Give us a call and we’ll let you know where we’ll be hiking that week, we’ll also be posting locations on Facebook & Instagram.  We recommend dressing in layers for these hikes, bring water, along with a headlamp.  We look forward to seeing everyone Thursday night!
