No snowshoes? No Worries- We have snowshoes that you can borrow! Let me know if you need to borrow snowshoes when signing up for this activity and I will bring you a pair to use.

Warm clothes, mittens, hat, snow pants etc.

A quest is a treasure hunt in prose.

Which is not easy for me heaven knows!
All the clues are provided in rhyme.
Giving me I have a heck of a time!

Rules are important as everyone knows,
Play fair, and you’ll all be pros.
Once found, the treasure must be re-hidden
Moving it or leaving it open is forbidden!

The Government Peak trails are where we begin,
Read the clues carefully and you will win…
Follow the trail named after a delicious berry,
Alas this is winter and no sweet fruit to carry,
But treasure awaits along this trail.
Up and down the hill you will sail,
I have no doubt you will prevail!

A few crossings past skiers you will make,
Remain where snowshoer’s travel, no ski turns to take.
The Treasure you seek is nestled under a giant drop stone,
This boulder stands alone,
A silent reminder of glaciers long ago
Look for the treasure hidden beneath the snow.
