There’s something about winter adventures that require a little Read More

A Higher World

Rich, Day Hiking Ambassador

Frozen fog has transformed the hillside evergreens into a tiered arrangement of powdered confectionaries. We are halfway up the slope of Camel’s Hump, Vermont’s third highest and most iconic mountain.

We have arrived at this point via the Burrows Trail, ascending from the town of Huntington, a mere half hour outside Burlington. I Read More

Quality over Quantity


Lyndon, Backcountry Ambassador

Looking back to the 2015-16 snowshoeing season, it could be easy for me to feel discouraged. When I sat down to write this entry, I intended to write about my disappointment, but the more I thought about what I’ve done over the last few months, the less and less disappointed I became.

Ambassador Review — Wilderness


Stephen, Day Hiking Ambassador

When my order of Tubbs Wilderness snowshoes arrived, I was very excited! They looked technically advanced and decently built right out of the box.

Tubbs Men’s Wilderness Snowshoe

Kovas, Family Ambassador

This winter, I got to test out the Men’s Wilderness Snowshoe, and, though our snow was few and far between, I managed to get out a few times. If you’re a big guy like me or are planning on carrying heavy loads while snowshoeing, this is probably the best option you could find.

Jan and Kelly, Day Hiking Ambassadors

It is true, that born in the 60’s, I fall back on flower children expressions when describing my snowshoeing experiences. The theme of peace and love were made popular during my era and are truly timeless for a mountain girl like me. Getting out on the trail conjures up Read More

Snowshoeing and Storytelling


Michelle, Day Hiking Ambassador

When we think of snowshoeing we don’t think of storytelling but we should.  It’s not very practical to take a book snowshoeing with you. It’s hard to turn the pages while wearing mitts, snow can wreck it and it’s hard to see where you’re going while reading.

Reading is important. My husband and Read More
