STATELINE–New and seasoned outdoor enthusiasts can learn the basics of winter camping with a two-day workshop hosted by the Tahoe Rim Trail Association. Snow Camping 101 is offered Feb. 5-6 at the nonprofit’s Stateline location, 128 Market Street off Kingsbury Grade.

TRTA volunteers, who are experts in snow camping, will share the basics of winter trip planning along with how to stay warm out there in the snow. Participants will also learn shelter orientation, backcountry cooking and Leave No Trace principles.

Experts will also share their gear recommendations.

Feb. 5 includes a day of classroom instruction to learn the basic concepts. Participants will also be able to bring their own gear to review with instructors. On Feb. 6, the group will spend an afternoon in the field for hands-on practice of their newly learned skills under the supervision of instructors.

The cost to participate is $100 for TRTA members or $130 for non-members. Registration is available online at tahoerimtrail.org/event/snow-camping-101.
