Glacier National Park is offering winter snowshoe walks every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. beginning Jan. 9, when it kicks off the seasonal program with a celebration of Winter Trails Day to promote the fitness and social benefits of outdoor activities. The snowshoe walks will continue through March 20.
The public is invited to join the two-hour, ranger-led snowshoe excursions into the park’s winter environment. The program is free, and participants are encouraged to bring snowshoes or rent them for a nominal fee at the Apgar Visitor Center.
Participants should wear sturdy winter boots, dress in layers for a variety of winter conditions, and bring water and snacks.
The walks will begin and conclude at the Apgar Visitor Center. There is no group size limit and reservations are not accepted. The snowshoe walks are suitable for varying ages and abilities, but are not recommended for children under age 6.
The snowshoe walks are presented in partnership with the Glacier National Park Conservancy, the park’s nonprofit fundraising partner.
