Snow Science Exploration Hike

Overview

February 20
9:00 am
35
Walking Mountains Science Center

Join a Walking Mountains naturalist guide for a 2-mile backcountry snowshoe hike through the White River National Forest, and learn how Colorado’s snowpack shapes the landscapes and communities that we call home. Dive deep into the science of the climate, weather, and snow that shapes our landscapes and communities! Learn which critters live under the snowpack, why Colorado’s snow is the gold standard for skiers, and dig (literally) into the science of avalanches—all amidst the backdrop of winter vistas and mountain views! Snow Science Hikes are led at a relaxed pace, and appropriate for all experience and fitness levels. Hikes will be led at either Iron Mountain or Yoder Gulch, conditions dependent.

Hikes meet at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon. Snowshoes, poles, hot drinks, and transportation are provided.
