Are you tired of being in zoom classes all day? Do you want to meet some new people in some beautiful nature? Come snowshoeing to Hollyburn with me! I know there's already a snowshoe trip happening on the 12th, but is there such thing as too much snowshoeing?? I don't think so!

The trail is just under 4 km each way, with an elevation gain of 440m, so it's a decent hike but still pretty beginner friendly! Should take around 3-4 hours total. At the peak there's some beautiful views, and I'll bring my pot/stove so we can have some hot chocolate/tea! I've also read that the trail is steep enough that you can slide down on a garbage bag (or your rain jacket) which could be very fun... (but obviously optional)

Snowshoes/crampons highly recommended, you can rent snowshoes from the VOC room.

No pretrip meeting, but I'll be in contact with everyone over email if all goes well :)
