We had a fantastic weekend playing in the snow at WOW’s first workshop of 2019 – Intro to Snowshoeing – thank you to all the wonderful women who made the trek up to Gold Creek Pond at Snoqualmie Pass and embraced the winter wonderland! We learned a little bit about the history of snowshoeing and modern-day snowshoe options, winter and avalanche safety, the 10 essentials and more – all while enjoying Washington’s bountiful natural resources and making new friends.

Having never been snowshoeing and on top of that doing it with a large group of strangers was intimidating. But I did it successfully! And I left having made a new friend that I plan to get outside with. – 2019 Snowshoe Participant
