            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.

            6:15 - 9 PM

            Friday, June 28

            How to get there:  

            Go to Bountiful

            Get off of the 500 South exit

            Head WEST

            Go NORTH for 1 -2  miles on the Frontage Road located on the WEST side of Legacy Highway

            Enter on the main entrance of the lake and look for us.

            Call if necessary:  my cell:  801-278-5313

            Bountiful Lake is one of my favorite places to kayak and SUP surf.  

            I wasn't sure we were going to pull it off this weekend, so sorry for the short notice, but it will be a beautiful night for those who come!

            I am bringing flat water kayaks and stand up paddle boards enough for 9 people to be out of the water at any one time.  No worries if we have more than that.  We rotate people in and out of the water often.

            If you are new at either one of these sports, this is a great opportunity to get better acquainted.  They are both super fun!!


            Join now if you are not a current member of our Live and Thrive Outdoor Adventure Club, $35 ANNUAL membership dues, (good for the next 12 months).

            Click on the above link to pay.

            Membership gets you invited to many outdoor activities including our watercraft sports this summer! As a member, you also agree to abide by Sheryl's rules for your own safety and the safety of others.  These basic rules will be explained to you at the beginning of this event.

            Instruction is offered for both sports as needed.

            I bring paddles, life jackets and of course all the boats.

            IF YOU HAVE ANY LIFE JACKETS, BRING THEM!  We may need more.

            Bring a snack if you like, water bottle, hat, sun glasses, and extra clothes since you will get at least a little wet.

            RSVP!!  If you plan to come to I know who all is coming and how many.  Remember meetup.com is just one of several places that people hear about my events.

            It's worth the 4 1/2 hours to drive to Escalante where the best slot canyons in the world are!
