Experienced Maine AMC winter hiking leaders will discuss clothing, gear, snow travel, and other essential knowledge and techniques to prepare you for outdoor outings in the winter. This event is intended as an introductory course for new and experienced three-season hikers and a refresher for experienced winter adventurers. Although the focus of the workshop is on hiking in the winter, many of the topics apply to any outdoor winter outing. This workshop will be an excellent "things-you-need-to-know-before-you-go" for anyone who will be spending time out of doors this winter. This event is free and open to the public.
