Strap on your snowshoes and join us for this free clinic to improve your snowshoe skills and get ready for our Snowshoe Social & Race Series in a fun and unintimidating environment. The clinic will take place from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Cross Country, Telemark + Snowshoe Center and will be led by Atlas Snowshoe & Solomon Trail Running Team member Ross McMahan. You'll get tips and pointers to help you feel at one with your snowshoes, as well as instruction covering effective training, proper clothing, managing energy and fueling your body. Core fundamentals and technique for running on groomed trails, fresh snow, running in challenging conditions, transitioning from groomers to fresh snow and running hills will also be covered.

All participants are required to have a Snowshoe Trail Pass and may either bring their own snowshoes or they can rent Atlas snowshoes at the Cross Country, Telemark + Snowshoe Center prior to the clinic. Trail Passes will cost $27 for the full day and snowshoes may be rented for the clinic for only $15. All ability levels are welcome, so come on up and see what snowshoe running is all about!
