Snowshoe Making Workshop

The second Snowshoe Making Workshop will take place on January 28, 2017 from 10am- 1p.m. Cost is $119.00  (FOB members $109.00)  The deadline to register is Jan. 18th, due to the time needed to get the supplies shipped, so be sure to register ASAP!  This workshop is made possible by the Friends of Brooksvale Park.

The workshop provides Snowshoe kits that include pre-bent white ash frames and a very strong nylon lacing material.  We will feature the Green Mtn Bearpaw style snowshoe, especially suited for New England.  Please note that bindings are not included in the kit.  Each pair of snowshoes can take up to 8 hrs to complete.  The goal of this workshop is to get the project started, learn and practice the lacing techniques, and gain confidence to finish the project at home.  Park staff will be available to help throughout the process.  Call or email Ranger Vin with any questions.
