December 2017-January 2018
The Ludington State Park offers snowshoe making classes every fall and winter.
Here's the 2017-2018 Schedule:
December 9 & 10
January 13 & 14
Classes are held at the Warming Shelter (unless otherwise noted) and are limited to eight participants 16 years and older. Instructor guide you through the steps to making top-of-the-line traditional wooden snowshoes that will get you through the deep snowfalls, and will last for generations. The cost for making a pair of snowshoes is $220, which includes the pre-formed wooden frames, lacing, high quality bindings, personal instructions and lunch. When you are finished, you have snowshoes you can use throughout the winter, or give them away as a unique gift. During the warmer months, you can display them as a decoration. Snowshoeing is inexpensive and a great way to burn some calories while enjoying the outdoors.
