Make your journey lighter and plan to wear one set of clothes on the trail, same set each day. And one set of clothes at camp, same set each night.


“We had so much fun!! Maggie was awesome, very accommodating and helpful through the entire process. I can’t recommend this experience enough, if you’re looking for an outdoor snowshoe adventure with your dog!”

Claudia, Buffalo NY
“Such an amazing experience, can’t recommend enough! It’s hard enough to find lodging that allows pets but even harder to find activities to also do that are pet friendly. Maggie was an amazing guide and both myself and my dog had an amazing time!”

Cameron, Boston, MA
“Maggie is terrific. She has a wonderful place to walk, super helpful instruction and is a great conversationalist. I highly recommend spending an afternoon with her as your guide.”
