Women’s Winter Skills Workshop

Embrace the winter with North Star Adventures. Winter is one of my favorite seasons yet, it can be intimidating for those who are unsure of how to stay warm and dry.

The winter landscape can be stunningly beautiful, peaceful, less crowded, and exhilarating. With the right clothing, mindset, and knowledge you can safely enjoy this winter wonderland.

In our Women’s Winter Skills Workshop you will learn the basics of snowshoeing and cross country skiing. We will be looking at and trying out a variety of snowshoes and skis. You will have the opportunity to learn and practice both snowshoe and cross county ski technique.  Other topics will include thermoregulation, techniques for keeping warm and dry, and nutrition to keep you warm and energized in the winter.

  • Snowshoes and skis to use for the day
