Bigfoot Glowshoe!

You read that correctly, the Bigfoot Snowshoe event is going to the dark side! On Thursday, February 9 from 7-10 PM, join Wellness and the Outdoor Adventure Program for a new, fun event - IN THE DARK! This event will take place at the Tech Trails where paths will be marked by glow sticks in the snow!

Courses of approximately 2k with varying degrees of difficulty are marked by the OAP student staff with glow sticks. Included in the registration fee is snowshoe rental for the evening, a flashlight key chain, glow sticks, chili provided by MTU Dining Services, access to the marked trails for the evening, and a chance to win some great prizes!  Held in conjunction with Winter Carnival, this event promotes healthy and active lifestyles year round!
