hey everybody I'm Kelsey hey Paul my friend Colin and today we're going on a trail heads adventure and we are going now shoe it no just trust me OK it's going to be awesome ok just follow my lead okay yes obviously you've done this a million times right now every rapper from 1992 to 1996 was digging your style right now make them say oh no no no are you having fun I'm having the time of my life yeah but take books like really getting the hang of this we're going to die out here oh that's possible the glass is frozen and we also have any nutrition in it it's all going to work out Oh super what what do you think we're going to need guys going up on the the trail here but things will just need our gear yeah we'll need the poles did we bring any water I mean you can totally eat the snow wait water break water break all right follow me anyone to the rest all right let's go we had to start with like the the 65 degree incline well you know that you never see a beautiful view if you don't hike up so what hallmark card did you read that off I came up with it myself so since this is my first time snowshoeing I thought it would be good to get a guide so we are meeting up with an REI Outdoor School instructor us beard models know that there's one thing you always have to be enough prepared over a light poles are not here what is happening I don't know you see mine Kelsey yeah yeah they have a thingy oh yeah see my handle stays out of this now yours goes all the way to the Center of the Earth oh yeah hey guys how's it going I'm Julia I work for the REI after school if you ever I just realized that my poles are pretty ineffective right now I've actually got some extra baskets like these they're like snowshoes for your poles Oh oh so this is our first time ever going so she was awesome you need like special experience if you can walk you can snowshoe it's a great workout you can get as much exercise as you want we only like going 100 feet earned a lodge and for ours it's pretty good time Sophia : hold on you want to escape some crowd you can go in slightly more backcountry areas wait so we're just about hell what are you talking about that huge rocky outcropping with the yes article for beginners stay on trail it can be tempting when snowshoeing to go off trail what are you looking at me for can you just stay still real quick okay are you going top shelf this is going well I just need to get a book okay okay so you said what was your issue here I'm just curious what how I'm looking here because my goal is to make it off this mountain oh yeah how do you know if the size of your snowshoe is like too big or too small if you're heavier you'll usually want a larger snowshoe gives more surface area to prevent you from sinking in oh good to know you did this exactly right you got your tabs going to the outside so try lifting your heel up let's see where that rotation point is yeah let's get that a little further lower you want the ball of your foot to be over the axle of the snowshoe okay yeah I totally feel that that's really cool so besides like the essentials what other gear might we want to take on a snowshoeing adventure well I like to wear waterproof hiking boots wool or synthetic socks and then on the outermost layer just being waterproof I came really prepared yeah that jacket looks like it's absorbing the snow pretty well it is this is an awesome jacket actually at least you're confident I'm like a sponge you could probably wring me out right so water first jacket that's very good to know things to keep in mind in the wintertime there's different safety concerns know before you go check the conditions whether the avalanche or trail conditions in the northwest coast the Northwest Avalanche Center and you can check with a national park ranger so we brought like a handful of press hold like a half of mochi recipes in there and four and a half gallons of tea I'll share it with you and they're going to be enough would that be and I can adequate use of our pack space having nutrition and hydration are awesome so you're saying you're nailed it if we leave a trail of pretzel crumbs will you be able to find her I think she'll responded okay on we go Andiamo this is so awesome look up pretty alright I think we are going the right way now you think we are oh hey Julia you definitely have some questions yeah awesome so we've taken a couple tumbles okay and then we basically get stuck so instead of like plunging my hand way in aha I'm almost losing my whole arm there if we can make an X with our poles when I fall down if I push off notice that my hand didn't plunge at all okay an aggression Oh beautiful well done have you done that for have I fallen before no that's my first time wow I feel so much better I feel like an expert now so excited I heard this is amazing the complete whiteout beautiful yeah wasn't it worth it though yeah let's drink trick this is like the best trip ever there smokey right now my really possibly it was so funny well I'm glad you trusted me a little bit enough to come out here well also it did help to have an expert on our side yes thank God for Julian right okay ready okay go white background we'll come back and summer back down this path that is so heavy wow you ate the whole trip to offer to carry my backpack such a gentleman I'm just going to put it on with off I guess I am

    Gee, about the only thing I learned was putting the poles in an X pattern to help me push-up. Other than that… uhh
