In the winter months, many of us think about going skiing or escaping to somewhere warm, but have you thought about winter hiking and snowshoeing? Do you like to be active and outside, but the thought of getting cold keeps you indoors? Join the Southeastern Massachusetts (SEM) chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club for an informative afternoon that will change your mind about hiking and being outdoors in the winter months.

You will learn about necessary clothing and gear, nutrition and hydration requirements, winter conditioning, winter issues and how to avoid them and why we love to hike in the winter. The workshop is free to all and is a prerequisite (or prior winter hiking experience) to join the SEM Winter Hiking Series.

The workshop runs from 12:30-3:30 with clothing and gear demonstrations. Light snacks will be provided but participants should bring water or other non-alcoholic beverage of their choice.

Registration is required for this workshop; please contact leader George Danis to register.

After the workshop, join the SEM Annual Meeting/Dinner at the Bay Pointe Club in Buzzards Bay (registration is separate- see listing).

Cost: Free
