Wild Ambassador Event: Trek with Toddlers to Red Heather Hut
This outdoor event will combine family friendly snow play with winter safety practice. After a 5 km hike(snowshoes or touring appropriate skies essential) to the Red Heather Hut, re-familiarize yourself with avalanche safety gear like beacons, probes and shovels. There will also be fun games, lots of time to enjoy the warming hut, hot chocolate, songs and snacks! Participants must provide own equipment, food and transportation to and from Squamish, BC.
Please note this is not an avalanche training course! Participants should bring at least one search set (beacon, probe, and shovel) per family group, and be familiar with the basic search functions of the beacon.
