12 Essentials to carry when Hiking or Snowshoeing:

These items are not all required to have before you can hike with us BUT in order to be fully prepared, get in the habit of carrying these items with you since you never know when they may be needed to help you or someone else in need.

  1. Water - Essential!!!
  2. 2 Way Radio/Walkie Talkie
  3. Extra Food
  4. Layer up w/ extra Clothing/Insulation
  5. Rain/Wind Protection
  6. Sun Protection (Sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, lip balm)
  7. Compass
  8. Map
  9. Flashlight w/ spare batteries
  10. First Aid Kit
  11. Emergency Kit (Whistle, matches or small lighter, candle or fire starter tabs, lightweight reflective emergency bag or space blanket, pocket knife)
  12. When hiking with us, my cell phone number is 801-278-5313.  This is for last minute phone calls while we are in the valley.  Don't depend on a cell phone in the canyons since they may not get reception.


A few of my favorite Snowshoeing trails

Snowshoeing is a great aerobic workout.  You are actually quite warm, even though you spend all your time in the snow!  Within 15 minutes or so of starting out snowshoeing, we find ourselves peeling off clothing, due to so much body heat, even in 5 degrees above 0 Fahrenheit!
