Ranger-led Snowshoe Walks
Each winter from late December to April, Lassen offers ranger-led snowshoe walks. Ranger-led snowshoe walks are an excellent way to learn or practice snowshoeing techniques and explore Lassen in its winter form. Route and distance varies depending on group ability and fitness. At the beginning of each snowshoe walk, a ranger will demonstrate how to put on snowshoes and how to move around. Once the basic techniques are covered, the group heads out into the snow and the adventure begins!

Winter Ecology Snowshoe Program
Lassen's Education Program offers ranger-led snowshoe walks and winter ecology programs for school groups grades 3 through 8. Programs are by reservation only. Please visit our Field Trips page for more information.
