Hey Guys, Happy FriYAY!!
I've been getting TONS of questions lately on what I pack and take with me on my adventures. Specifically for snowshoeing trips also for people who want to try snowshoeing but have never done it before. This is the basics you need to bring with you do be as prepared as possible.
I believe if you don't have any winter sports to get you through the long cold months here in the Pacific Northwest you're going to have a long winter ahead of you. So get going! Snowshoeing is the perfect beginner sport to get you outside and hiking around in the mountains!
Today's post is my gear checklist and the basics I always make sure to have with me.
I hope this helps!

10)There are many different types of Snowshoes out there depending on what kind of weather and terrain you're planning on being on. I recommend going to your local REI to get fitted and tell them where you're planning on snowshoeing mostly. <3Link

Also for pants I wear thick leggings if it's a dry day, and snow pants or weather performance pants if its snowing and wet.
Just remember to LAYER! You will be surprised once you get moving how much you warm up!
Make sure to bring enough food and water along as well, it's always so fun to have a picnic at a halfway point!
Also bring any little survival kit with you for longer adventures. It makes you more confident and prepared! Here's a great small kit from REI Link
Hope this helps guys!
May your weekend be filled with awesome adventures & stay safe!
