Winter Trails Day

It's an exciting time in Colorado.  This past weekend, we spent time with 600 snowshoe hikers at Echo Lake.  Nationally, Winter Trails Day was held in nearly 90 venues around the country.  Locations include alpine resorts, Nordic centers, and national parks.  Organizers estimate that participation exceeded last year's total participation of 10,500 due to snow cover in most parts of the country.  Winter Trails Day, celebrating it's 15th year, was created to enable children and adults new to snow sports to try snowshoeing and/or cross country skiing FREE at participating venues.  This is an amazing opportunity to demo products and enjoy the cool crisp winter air.  Not to worry if you did not make it out last Saturday.  There are a few more events on January 16th.  The Traveling Trainers will be providing outreach at the Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, CO where all the festivities will take place.  We hope to see you there!
Safe travels...Kate and Tracy
