Do you still hike and camp in the snow?

We sure do! Because of their fears, very few people get to experience the pleasure of hiking and camping in the snow. Snow covered landscapes are beautiful and our students get to see spectacular views that ordinary folks do not. Like all things in the wilderness this activity requires careful planning, good gear, and a sense of adventure. Your child will be hiking with snowshoes on to keep them above the snow. If you’ve never been, snowshoeing is great fun!

Summit provides our students with the best gear, the warmest boots and a sleeping pad to protect from the cold when sleeping. Setting up camp in the snow is actually quite nice, as the snow packs down to create comfortable sleeping and sitting areas. What most people don’t realize is that it is actually easier to stay dry in the snow than the rain, and staying dry is an important aspect to keeping warm.
