A little planning goes a long way when it comes to getting out and exploring this beautiful province. Our Intro to Trip Planning workshop and Prairie Winter guide are here to help!
Learn to plan and prepare accordingly for your adventures so that your experiences are safe and rewarding while out on the trails. We want to help you think about what steps go into preparing for an adventure so you’ll get out there and have fun!
We will go over the who, what, where, when, why and how of planning your adventures and cover knowing before you go - trip + route planning, leaving a trip plan with a loved one, environmental responsibility, planning for safe travel and your type of trip, plus open up a discussion and have your additional winter adventure questions answered.
Join Backcountry Women and professional local guide Matt Peters from Wilderland Adventure Co. for an interactive evening exploring this topic with other outdoors-women and let’s get excited about planning some future adventures!
