Traditional wooden snowshoes, similar to Native American versions, will be showcased and instructions on how to build them will be given on Sunday, December 4th and December 18th. The times are from 10am to 5pm at Ludington State Park in Mason County (8800 W. M-116 in Ludington).
The cost for making the snowshoes is $180 and includes the pre-formed wooden frames, lacings, high-quality bindings and personal instruction. These hand-made snowshoes can be used for hiking throughout the winter, given as holiday gifts or used as home décor.
The park’s Warming Shelter will host the classes intended for ages 16 and up. Class size is limited to a maximum of 10 participants, and reservations are required. To make a reservation, call Ludington State Park , 231-843-9261, or email Alan Wernette at email@example.com.
