Bigfoot Snowshoe

The Bigfoot Snowshoe Event had another successful year in 2015 and we are excited for next year!  We saw a few changes for 2015 as we lowered the price for students as a part of the Experience Tech Fee Initiative and we implemented on-line registration for the first time.  We feel as though both of these changes helped us to reach 298 participants! 

As we approach 20 years of the event, we are looking to continue to improve the event even more.  Any feedback is appreciated and if you participated in the event this year, you should have received an email with a link to an evaluation.  We would love for you to complete that so we can hear what you have to say!  If you did not get the evaluation and would like to provide feedback, please email or

Event Details

The Bigfoot Snowshoe event is in its nineteenth year in 2016 and has been a staple event of the Spring Semester at Michigan Tech.  Courses of approximately 2k with varying degrees of difficulty are marked by the OAP student staff.  For a nominal registration fee, you get a great long sleeved t-shirt, access to the marked trails for the day, and a chance to win some great prizes!  Held in conjunction with Winter Carnival, this event promotes healthy and active lifestyles year round!
