I'll be taking some mountaineering classes soon as I kick around in the Adirondacks, Whites and such.

help with grad school snowshoeing survey


My name is Beth and I'm a student in the Washington state Mountaineers Basic Alpine Climbing class. I'm also a graduate student at Seattle University studying Sport Management. I'm working with snowshoes.com and my Seattle U advisor to do a survey about snowshoeing.

I would be very grateful if any summit poster users who have ever snowshoed could help me out by taking my survey.

Thanks a million!
