Snowshoeing

snowshoeingThe summer months may be a more popular time to get out and enjoy the trails near Sandy, but the winter months may be more beautiful, and are definitely more peaceful and secluded. Snowshoeing near Sandy is a great way to enjoy the wonderful Wasatch Range when the snow starts to fly.

When snowshoeing in the backcountry, it is imperative that you are avalanche aware and prepared. KNOW THE AVALANCHE CONDITIONS AND HAVE THE PROPER GEAR AND TRAINING BEFORE HEADING OUT.
