Because what’s more fun than a SNOW DAY?!? Get out and enjoy your Wisconsin winter!
The Historic Indian Agency House invites the public to explore our Nature Trail and beautiful, protected acreage by cross-country skis or snowshoes.
Applicable dates include the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of January, February and March 2014, ending March 08, 2014. Hours are 9am to 3pm, with event dates dependent upon weather and snow cover. (Call HIAH at 608-742-6362 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about specific dates or for further information.)
EVERYONE must stop by the Visitor's Center EVERY TIME to sign in before you hit the trail, and again to sign out when you complete your outdoor adventure. (At this time, staff will give you a property map to keep you on track. In addition, registration will assist us in recording visitation and help ensure your safety!)
Don't have your own snowshoes? USE OURS!
Due to the generosity of the Great Circle Foundation, HIAH has acquired several sets of beginner's snow shoes--in a range of sizes (including adult, young adult, and children's, ranging from a weight limit of 30 to 340 pounds).
Reservations are required to borrow the shoes, with each reservation allowed a two-hour time allotment with the snow shoes.
Snow Shoe Borrowers must report to our Visitor's Center (20 minutes before your reservation time is suggested) for check-in, and for a brief tutorial before heading out. These snow shoes will remain the property of HIAH, and must remain ON HIAH PROPERTY at all times, for the duration of the loan period.
This opportunity is FREE--whether you utilize our snow shoes or have your own. (Borrowers accept full responsibility for the shoes for the duration of the loan period, and agree to replace broken or damaged shoes, shoe components, or ski poles.)
Call 608-742-6362 OR email email@example.com to make reservations for your family, Scout troop, or yourself TODAY!
(Also makes for a great date!)
Borrowing will be treated on a first-come, first-serve basis--but we will do the best we can to accommodate you!
