Description

Hosted by Casper Mountain Biathlon Club

Enjoy the benefits of outdoor play and learning in the snow with your family during the Winter Adventure Day, Saturday, March 9th, at the Casper Mountain Outdoor Center at McMurry Mountain Park (Biathlon Center) on Casper Mountain.

Activities are geared for all ages and generations of the family. Placed-based learning stations will inspire hands-on family learning about our local environment. Families can then play together in the snow with the options of cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, shooting, orienteering or just digging in the snow. If your family is far away, bring a group of friends.

Participation is free, but equipment and lessons are limited to a first come basis. Register to reserve equipment times, lessons, and bussing (if needed). Prizes are available for the first registered families.
