Today’s Guided Snowshoe Program…

Winter Ecology of Bogus Basin

This program is one of the many FREE Guided Snowshoe Programs offered this winter. Participants must have snowshoes and a valid trail pass to join the program. Snowshoe rentals and trail passes can be purchased at the Frontier Point Lodge. Maximum of 12 people per program.

Meet your Guide!

Hit the trail with Ray Vizgirdas, retired Wildlife Biologist and lifelong Naturalist for this installment of our Guided Nature Program series. With over three decades of experience working for state and federal agencies, Ray knows a thing or two about the outdoors (he has literally authored guidebooks about the flora at Bogus Basin!). On Saturday mornings/afternoons and Tuesday evenings, Ray covers a new topic relevant to the time of year. Whether it’s wildflowers and edible/useful plants or nature photography and animal behavior, you’re bound to learn a thing or two on your outing.
