Snowshoeing-Sasquatch March 11, 2021

The last trip up the hill during 2021 saw Mouat Extreme Outdoor education take their new snowshoes for a test drive (thanks Mouat PAC!!!) The brave adventurers rode the blue chair to the top of the hill, and then traversed along the ridgeline all the way to the green chair. Along the way Sasquatch’s main man, Kuba guide extraordinaire, led the excursion and taught the students about avalanche awareness, safety, and control. The students did a little offroading on steep terrain and deep snow, as they travelled through lush forest and frozen creek bed all the way from the top to the bottom of the mountain. The afternoon was spent completing the much easier base loop, learning about and digging snow shelters, and enjoying a little well deserved hot chocolate (the verdict is still out on whether it is better made with regular water or gatorade…) Outdoor Education students please leave a 100 word blog response below.
