Course Description

Conditions permitting – Snowshoeing is a fun and healthy sport that allows you to easily enjoy the outdoors and further explore the untouched wilderness in the winter. Our experienced instructors will demonstrate and teach you all the snowshoeing basics you need to enjoy this relaxing winter activity. Then, they'll lead you on a guided trek, sharing their knowledge of the plants and wildlife that thrive in this wintry environment. Be sure to reserve a spot on this exceptional adventure. All necessary snowshoeing equipment is provided.

NOTE: This class is weather dependent.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
