Whiteshell Provincial Park adventure

December 10, 2016
General Trips / INTERMEDIATE

Lack of snow: we will do a 10-13 km. hike in Whiteshell Provincial Park (area to be determined), complete with outdoor BBQ potluck. Some snow: this clever trip leader will think of something else that hopefully would facilitate a BBQ. Lots of snow: go snowshoeing. For those who are ready for anything, please register after December 2.
