FREE Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing!
Winter Trails Day 2022
Get Fit Great Falls, in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service, is proud to bring back Winter Trails Day 2022 on Saturday, February 5th at the Silver Crest Winter Recreation Area. It is a great way to get out of the house and enjoy the beauty of Montana winter.
The day offers snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, all for free! There are scheduled snowshoe hikes throughout the day that cater to people of all ages and experience. Folks who have never snowshoed are encouraged to come up and learn with our experienced volunteers. No matter your age or experience, there is a hike for everyone.
There will be a guided cross-country ski tour at 10:30 AM for a limited number. Reservations for this tour must be made at Bighorn Outdoor Specialists (406-453-2841) who will lend their skis free of charge. You must visit the shop to be sized for boots and skis. Bighorn will have their ski equipment available the rest of the day for those who want to try cross country skiing after their snowshoe hike.
Snowshoes are provided free, thanks to the US Forest Service, Wild Montana, and Montana Discovery Foundation.
Space for the snowshoe hikes is limited. Registration is required and opens at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, Jan. 26th. To obtain more information and to register, go to getfithikes.eventbrite.com
All participants must be dressed warmly with layers and bring their own food and drink for the day. We recommend carrying a small day pack on the trail. A face covering is recommended when fitting snowshoes and skis and in areas where social distancing is not possible.
