Snowshoe adventure planned for Friday
DILLON — On Friday, Feb. 23, bring your children up to Elkhorn Hot Springs for a snowshoeing adventure, starting at 10 a.m. Participants will meet at the upper parking lot (by the pool). People looking to carpool or send their children with other parents should meet at the Forest Service Office at 9 a.m. by the flag pole.
The event will consist of a snowshoe hike, both on and off trail, with different age-group levels. Participants will learn about snow science and safety, winter survival, and how to have fun in the snow. All participants should bring a pack with water, a lunch, and extra layers. Snowshoes will be available (mostly kid sizes), or you can bring your own. Parents and family are welcome to participate; however, adult-size snowshoes are limited. Sleds are also welcome.
The Elkhorn cross-country ski trails are free to the public and open to both snowshoes and cross-country skiing.
The Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, Beaverhead Trails Coalition, Pioneer Mountain Education Foundation, and Elkhorn Hot Springs have joined together to host this fun-family event. All are welcome. Details: 406-683-3900.
