Anyone interested in Winter Hiking?

Hi all, I am an avid backpacker that recently got my snowshoes in time for the tons of snow this season. My husband and I usually go hiking every fortnight, so extending an invitation to go hiking if you're in the area. We hike in all seasons though, so no snowshoes or microspikes, no problem.

Spanking new to Couchsurfers, so figure this is a good way to ease into couchsurfing :) Ideally would meet up first before hitting the trail.

Best to you all!
Kim

Hello there. I just moved here two weeks ago and looking for hiking partners. Unfortunately I don't have snowshoes, but would love to join you on hikes where they aren't required!

I would be really up for this. My work schedule is a little erratic, so it's difficult for me to plan too much in advance, but if you guys end up getting a day together, I would love to be able to join.

Alright, will change this to Spring hiking then :)

Steve, most times you wouldn't need snowshoes, but if you have Microspikes, they will come in handy. I've found the icy patches linger for a while.

Andrew, will put you down for hiking.
