The Almanor Ranger District will again be offering its popular guided snowshoe tours this winter and the first tour is scheduled for February 2nd. These tours are offered to the general public, community and school groups.

Snowshoeing is a wonderful way to explore your national forest, floating over the snow among snow-laden trees, with animal tracks to follow and the quiet of a snow-hushed forest. It is a magical experience.

Snowshoes for these tours are provided free of charge and are geared for beginners but can be strenuous depending on terrain and snow powder conditions.

Tours take place in the surrounding Lassen National Forest, but locations vary depending on current snow conditions.

A variety of topics are covered during the one to two-hour program, including basic winter survival skills, environmental education and local history.

If requested, programs can be tailored to include the California State Standards for environmental education.

Times and locations will be provided when you make your reservation. Snowshoe tours are scheduled for February 2nd, 8th and 17th.

Attendees must be at least eight years old, and minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Snowshoes are available free of charge, but cross-country skiers must provide their own equipment.

All tour programs require reservations. To reserve your spot, schedule your school/class, or obtain more information about our snowshoe program, contact Carlos Holguin, Visitor Information Service Specialist at (530) 258-2141 or by email at:
