Women's Winter Weekend participant |

We had a wonderful winter adventure that included rustic but very comfortable accommodations in a yurt, and days filled with snowshoeing, hiking and camaraderie around a nightly fire, not to mention the great home cooked meals that Nancy prepared. She always was ready to share her broad knowledge of the natural world, safety in the woods, and even understanding the best ways to choose equipment (in this case snowshoes) that best suits your needs! Nancy maintains a laid-back approach with lots of humor and wonder in the mix, but always remained vigilant to conditions and each person’s abilities. I highly recommend joining any of the expeditions North Star offers. They all deliver you into the heart of nature!
