Snowshoeing Bangs Canyon

Ever since we got that big snow a few weeks back, I have been wanting to get out and try out my snowshoes near home to get some practice with them before I head up into the mountains. Today was the first opportunity I had to give them a try, so I headed up to the Bangs Canyon area and used them for a few hours. It was a good workout 🙂

Snowshoe Practice

We received at least a foot of snow at my house last night and during the day today. The roads were messed up most of the day and a lot of people called into work. When I got home after work, I figured it would be a perfect opportunity to try out the snowshoes I picked up a few months back 🙂

Amanda snapped a few quick pictures while I was out in the yard trying them out…

It was also a great opportunity to try out the new Columbia Whirlibird 3-in-1 snow parka that I picked up last week for skiing this season.

Redfeather Hike Snowshoes

Getting ready for winter already! I’m looking forward to doing some snowshoeing on the Grand Mesa this winter, and when I came across a great deal on these snowshoes, I just couldn’t pass them up. Now I just need to wait for some snow 🙂

Since I’m planning on trying skiing for the first time this winter, I also got a great deal on some ski pants a few weeks ago from REI. Those will come in handy with these snowshoes, too. I ended up getting the North Face Freedom Pant in my favorite color….dark gray 🙂
