            Ice and Snow Hiking in Zion

            Micro spikes, pictured above, are required to hike in Zion National Park due to trail conditions which may have snow or ice on the trail. 

            • Micro Spikes are required for all hikers heading into Zion NP.  I have several brand new pair in stock, available for purchase. Cost: $50/pair
            • Micro Spikes are used on icy or snow packed trails, especially in Zion, which may have snow.
            • Micro Spikes slip over regular hiking shoes.  They offer excellent traction while hiking on ice or snowpacked trails.

            Ready to Hike the Swiss Alps this summer? Talk to me - I'll get you ready!

            Sheryl McGlochlin - Wednesday, January 02, 2013


            5 years ago I organized a group of 15 people to hike the Swiss Alps.  Since I knew this would be a group with a wide variety of hiking ability, I built an itinerary specifically for those who were coming.  It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to do it again!!




            We spent 5 days based in Zermatt looking over the Matterhorn and 5 days based in Lauterbrunnen (Jungfrau Region).

            Lauterbrunnen is situated in one of the most impressive trough valleys in the Alps, between gigantic rock faces and mountain peaks. With its 72 thundering waterfalls, secluded valleys, colourful alpine meadows and lonely mountain inns, the Lauterbrunnen Valley is one of the biggest nature conservation areas in Switzerland.




            Since I personally can't go to Switzerland every year and hike the Swiss Alps, I partner with a close friend of mine who DOES go every summer and takes people to all of these amazing places!

            When I go back to Switzerland, this is exactly what I'll do... again, since it accommodates so many different type of people. We had some in our group who loved hiking 12 hours every day, and others who were done after about an hour. It allows everyone to do what they want without holding anyone back.



            Some of us went mountain biking down an alp!

            Some went white water river rafting one day as well.




            Meet Up Groups for Exercise - One of my recent KSL TV segments

            Sheryl McGlochlin - Saturday, December 08, 2012

            http://studio5.ksl.com/index.php?nid=56&sid=22527468#ooid=Q1Y3c1NjoH3WLKhDxCjJ1u2Ws4xMPjkx


             

            Studio 5 - Weekdays at 11am on KSL 5

            Meet Up Groups for Exercise

            Make exercise your social hour, and you're likely to stick with it. Social media makes it easy for strangers to meet up and exercise together. 

            Outdoor enthusiast Sheryl McGlochlin spotted this new genre of recreation, and shares five favorites with Studio 5.

            The trend of plugging yourself into new fitness groups, using social media, is making life so fun! You NEVER have to workout alone with whatever sport you want to participate in!

            Benefits of exercising with a group:

            Groups that exercise together may not have anything else at all in common! It's great because it brings people together who may not think they would ever be friends or even acquaintances in any other setting.

            Speaking from experience as a leader of a group, I also see people struggling socially. They have become "workaholics" and need to change their lives and find new friends. They know they are losing social skills and want to change. I believe you can never have enough active, healthy-minded friends! They are GOLD and will keep you on the right track throughout your life!

            What should join a group?
            People
            · Who are hungry to try new things and meet others
            · Who have a wide variety of skills, ability and experience
            · From all walks of life and all ages
            · Who are courageous!
            · Who are willing to come by themselves and be open minded and friendly with the group.
            · Who are coming for a specific sport or activity
            · Who aren't afraid to join a group and participate with a bunch of strangers!
            · Who may have nothing in common with anyone else EXCEPT the actual sport itself!

            I also see people who are in the process of moving to Utah from various parts of the world, who haven't arrived yet. They know about our beautiful mountains and want to go hiking when they get here. They find out about my hiking group by doing a Google search, then start emailing me to get to know me better BEFORE they arrive. When they do get here, they instantly have a friend and fit right in. They don't need to deal with a long, lonely time before getting acclimated. I have even helped new hikers find a place to live, etc.

            About the leader

            · In a group setting, there is always a leader or organizer
            · They hold it together, with the help of some assistant organizers
            · They generally don't offer formal instruction except for a brief orientation before the event.

            As a leader, social media makes it so easy to promote the group. For example:
            · I can organize and promote quickly and broadly without spending much money.
            · It allows people to find out what's going on and "fit in" to a new environment VERY quickly!

            What these 5 groups have in common:

            Open to all adults - regardless of experience, skill or ability A great way to make new friends while being active Friendly environment For support, a leader, organizer or coach will ease you into the group

            Where to find a group:

            · Meetup.com
            · Adult Community Education
            · Facebook
            · Google Search
            · Word of Mouth from locals

            Come, play with us this winter! Outdoor Adventure & Community Garden Calendar

            Sheryl McGlochlin - Thursday, December 06, 2012

            #1 way to reduce stress and feel happy during the winter months:  

            Get outside, away from the city, enjoy nature with good people!

            That's my Christmas gift to you!

            I'll provide plenty of outings that are perfect for all abilities.

            99 Reasons WHY you should snowshoe!

            Not feeling confident about joining us during the winter?

            No worries!  Email me anytime OR talk to me in person about your concerns during several CALENDAR EVENTS when I'll have more time to visit with you i.e. Snowshoe Orientation, $20 Clothing Sales, or "Work for Food" Winter Garden Tour and Parties.

            2013 Outdoor Adventure and Winter Community Garden Calendar

            I'm working hard on posting many outings on my website for 2013.  Check the calendar often!

            I hope you'll join us!

            Those who have been coming are having a great time!

            3rd Annual Bryce Canyon National Park Winter Hiking Trip -  

            It's shaping up to be another great trip and we have had some AMAZING trips during the past 12 months!  We will have around 40 people on this trip.  That means plenty of smaller groups with similar abilities so everyone will have fun.  Register now IF you want to get all the details that I'll be sending out during the next few weeks. 


            Snowshoe Outings (Tuesday and Thursday mornings)

            Rain, snow, shine, etc. we are out there!  I always tweak the outing to fit the weather and road conditions but I don't ever cancel, so come!!  It may be a shorter outing and we may not go into the canyons if it's raining/snowing but it's always fun!!  I have special local trails that I use on days that have inclement weather. It always feels so good to get outside, even for an hour regardless of the weather!



            Multi Sport Outings - Downhill Ski, Cross Country Ski, Snowshoe or Hike

            Monday through Friday in the afternoon.  Check details since this has become one of our favorite things to do during the week!  It's a rare occasion that you can find a place to do so many winter sports all in the same area!  The minimal cost will be for those who downhill ski.  It's a great price for skiers who want to ski often and for a shorter amount of time.  Snowshoers and skiers ride up together, then meet back in the parking lot 90 minutes later.




            "Work for Food" Winter Garden Tour and Parties

            With nearly 3 acres of garden space all around the SL valley and year round gardening, I can help you save serious money on food. By working a minimum of one hour per month, you'll receive amazing benefits!  Cost: $100/household for the next 12 months! Plan on receiving plenty of locally grown food! Gardening is very therapeutic and a valuable skill to have considering our economic climate.  We require no prior knowledge or experience.  What is required is a positive attitude and willingness to work a minimum of one hour per month. Help me spread the word by telling family, friends and coworkers since we are in need of more members for our 6th Annual Working Community Garden Group!  Makes a perfect Christmas gift.




            $20 Winter Clothing Sale - Outer Wear, Gently Used, Quality, Brand Names, Men, Women, Children Sizes

            During the month of December there are 4 times a week you can come and check out all the clothing items for sale!






            Zipfys For Sale!

            Cost:  $40 each, in stock.  Super fun and SAFE for nearly all ages.  I love the Zipfy because I think it's the safest, most fun sledding device on the market!Check out my super fun Zipfy Ride down a mountain!  Watch for Zipfy Riding Outings soon!





            High Tech MSR Snowshoes & Poles for rent: 

            Cost:  $10/person per outing. I have invested in 18 pair for members of our group. Available only for those attending our outings.  RSVP for a Snowshoe Outing and book a pair.




            Snowshoe Outings (Saturday mornings)  

            We never cancel due to any type of weather so come!  If necessary learn tips on how to dress for any type of weather condition. Rainy or snowy days are excellent opportunities to test your clothing.  If you like, I can teach you how to stay comfortable, warm and dry for any type of weather.  Depending on the weather conditions, we may or may not go into the canyons.  Safety is always my #1 priority. The outing may be shorter as well on wild weather days.



            Snowshoe Orientation (Saturday mornings)

            Every Saturday at 8 am at our regular meeting place I offer a 30 minute Snowshoe Orientation to help those who may be new to snowshoeing or joining our group for the first time.  I want you to have a great time, the first time out with us!  It may be a bit intimidating so come early and talk to me in person about any concerns you have. Meet my assistants and others who will help you during the outing, if you need assistance.  You can attend the orientation only. Come and get acclimated to the group!

            Before attending, check out these links:

            Upcoming Events to be posted soon:

            9th Annual Downtown SL Christmas Night Walk -

            Hopefully, if the weather looks dry, I'll post for either Wednesday or Thursday, Dec. 12 or 13.  I plan to post 2 of these outings.  The second one will be posted for the following week, on a different weekday.

            Weekend Hiking Trips

            Several trips are being planned for 2013.  Bryce is just the first one for 2013.  I'll let you know as soon as they post, since I know you want plenty of notice.


            Avalanche Safety: Take the time to learn more...

            Sheryl McGlochlin - Tuesday, November 27, 2012

            http://utahavalanchecenter.org/tutorials

            Anyone who spends any time in the Wasatch Mountains during the winter months should become familiar with the good, bad and ugly side of snow!  I mostly talk about how beautiful and magical it is.  You'll see plenty of photos I've taken of a spectacular winter wonderland, however, I pay close attention to and study up on Avalanche Danger, watching the daily activity of what's happening up in our mountains.

            I am very grateful for the Utah Avalanche Center and how hard they work to educate and keep everyone of us safe while we are playing in the snow all winter long.

            Check out the videos they have produced and subscribe to their daily newsletter to see what's happening often.

            We support and raise money for the Utah Avalanche Center since they work very hard for very little money.  They always need more money so donate to their cause if you can.  

            It's helps us all enjoy our winter playground whether we are snowshoeing, zipfy riding, skiing or snowmobiling!

            Hike & Snowshoe Meeting Place - Exactly how to find us on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday

            Sheryl McGlochlin - Tuesday, November 27, 2012

            Many people ask me this question and I always feel bad when I don't have an exact address to give them. This is called "6200 South UTA Park n Ride".  It's a big paved parking lot and doesn't have an exact address written anywhere. Here's the next best address that is near by to help you find it. 

            Leave yourself extra time when you come the first time.  Make sure you have my cell phone, listed below, to call if you get confused.

            Once you've found it, it's super easy to get to and close to the I-215 freeway.  

            ***********************

            Go to the Old Mill Golf Course, 6080 South Wasatch Blvd.

            Drive SOUTH on Wasatch Blvd another 1/4 - 1/2 mile.

            Continue focusing on the same WEST side of Wastach Blvd.

            After passing the last office building on your right, turn into the parking lot and drive all the way to the SOUTH end of the parking lot. 

            When you can't go any further, park your car and look for us.

            That's where we meet.

            Keep my cell phone number handy and call me if necessary.

            If you get there and don't see anyone, don't panic.

            Depending on the day, we may be running a few minutes late but WE ALWAYS SHOW UP!

            My cell:  801-278-5313
