Winter Camping Workshop coming to Tettegouche State Park

Feb 06, 2018 02:23PM ● By Editor

Learn how to build a quinzhee and stay overnight.  If you dare.

Join the Tettegouche State Park Naturalist and other staff for a one-day introduction to winter camping. 

We will build a traditional quinzhee, an insulated snowcave, for sleeping. Also covered will be topics such as cooking outdoors in the snow, tricks for staying dry and warm in the winter, and we will discuss and try out some methods of transporting gear through the snow.

This one day workshop will cover everything you need to know about camping in the winter. Participants who CHOOSE to do so will be able to sleep in the constructed quinzhees and try out the skills they have just learned. Come for just a day of winter fun and learning, or make a weekend out of it. You choose.

No bugs! No poisonous plants! Lots of fun!
