CONCORD, N.H. -- Learn how to prepare for the challenges of winter hiking! Registration is now open for a new Beyond Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop called, "Explore Winter Hiking."
Course dates are:
Cost for all three sessions is $55. Participants must provide their own backpacks, winter clothing, hiking boots, boot traction devices, lunch and water for the hike. Winter hiking is not a beginner course, so recent hiking experience and moderate fitness level is required.
Winter hiking is rewarding, yet challenging, and requires preparation, detailed planning and specialized equipment. In this three-session course, you will learn what gear is needed and how to prepare for a winter hike, including safety concerns map reading and calorie requirements. Then you’ll hit the trail for a winter hike.
New Hampshire BOW programs are co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (www.wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (www.nhwf.org), a nonprofit group that advocates for the promotion and protection of hunting, fishing and trapping, as well as the conservation of fish and wildlife habitat.
