Distance and Time: The walks cover approximately 1.5 miles in two hours. This is a good opportunity for beginners to try the sport.
Group Size: Snowshoe walks are limited to 25 people, 8 years old or older, on a first-come, first-served basis. A sign-up sheet is available at the Jackson Visitor Center information desk one hour before each walk.
Equipment: You will need snowshoes. They can be borrowed from the park for a $4 per-pair donation, which defrays the cost of snowshoe maintenance and replacement, or you can use your own snowshoes. Participants also need to bring a hat, mittens or gloves, suitable boots (because you will sink into the snow even wearing snowshoes), sunscreen and sunglasses.
When: Ranger guided snowshoe walks at Paradise are scheduled to begin December 23, 2016 through March 26, 2017. The walks will be offered on weekends and holiday periods when the visitor center is open, begin at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and last two hours each. Sign-ups are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and begin one hour in advance of each walk at the Jackson Visitor Center information desk.
