      EVENT DETAILS
      Winter Navigation With Map & Compass


      Head out into the snow for a day of hands-on navigation training with our REI Outdoor School. You will learn to see three dimensions of the land in the two dimensions of a topographic map. We will don our snowshoes and teach you how to read contour lines landmarks and other map features. We'll also talk about magnetic north true north and magnetic variation and help you make sense of it all. From there you'll learn how to take a bearing from the terrain and your map so that you can triangulate your position and plan a route even in the snow. Maps and compasses will be provided. Prior snowshoeing experience is recommended (Introduction to Snowshoeing Class or equivalent skills). This is not a snowshoeing skills class and students should be able to snowshoe for 2-3 miles.

      Cost: Free - 79.00 to 99.00
