Snowshoe FAQ's for Open Groups


What should I wear & bring?

- Good walking boots or laced up snow boots (not 'moon boots', they are too big for our snowshoes (sorrels are ok)) Not trainers as you will get very cold, wet feet!

- Warm trousers such as thinner salopettes

- layers - t-shirt / wicking top & fleecey jumper and a jacket.  You can get warm so layering is the way to go

- Hat, gloves, sunglasses, suncream

- Small rucksack with some water in and space for a spare jumper

- camera for fab pictures!

 

What do you provide?

We have a adult and children snowshoes with walking poles that we fit to you, a qualified and legally registered Leader, transport from a central location, a hot drink and small snack

What is the difference between an Open snowshoe and a Private snowshoe?
You pay for an open snowshoe per person.  It is ideal if there are just a couple of you as it makes it cheaper than a private snowshoe.  This is also the place to come to meet more people and socialise a little!  Of course you don't know who will be in the groups and so we may go at a slower pace than you would like.  On open snowshoes, we meet at a central location for easy pick up and drop off and we generally go to a place that will be suitable for easy levels.  Not sure?  Consider booking a bespoke private snowshoe!

 

Can I bring my dog(s)?

Generally on an Open snowshoe we would prefer you not to bring your dog because there will be other people on the group who may not be comfortable with dogs.  However, please do always ask as we can check with the other members of the group

Will I be fit enough?
Yes! We are trained guides who find an easy middle pace.  We have lots of mini breaks to look at the view or to learn about the area - we go at the slowest pace.


Can I bring my small child?
Yes of course - small children that can be carried in a carry pack are welcome.  We ask that you still book a (free) ticket for them as of course they will need their own seat in the minibus.  You will also have to provide your own child seat for the minibus as we only have booster seats.  We ask that children 6 or younger who are not in a carry pack do not come on the Open snowshoe sessions as this will considerably slow down full paying adults.  However, again, please do ask as it depends how many other bookings we have on the event.


How long are the half day sessions?
They are 3.5 hours from pick up to drop off.  This includes a transfer time in the minibus which can be 15 to 30 minutes depending on the chosen area and traffic.


Where do we go snowshoeing?

We choose safe areas that will be suitable for all / easy levels,

Can you pick me up from my accomodation?

On an open snowshoe with other people on this we ask you to meet at a central location so that we can all get the maximum amount of time out snowshoeing.

 

What if the weather is bad?

If we judge the weather to be too bad or avalanche risk too high, we will contact you as soon as possible to arrange another day or a full refund.

 

Can I get a discount if I have my own snowshoes?

Yes!  Just choose the appropriate ticket - it gives you 10% of the full adult ticket price
