2014 Snow Walkers' Rendezvous
November 7-9, 2014,
Hulbert Outdoor Center,
Fairlee, Vermont, USA
1995 found a group of Traditional Northern Winter Travelers gathering at the Hulbert Outdoor Center in Fairlee, Vermont. Their idea was to share stories, trip routes, ideas about equipment, trail skills, and northern culture. Their goal is to see old friends, and meet new friends, and have a good time talking about their passion, the North and winter. This was the beginning of the Snow Walkers Rendezvous every November. The event has grown and expanded but maintains a feeling of a comfortable and relaxed group. Presentations and Workshops vary in subject, but all focus on traditional travel and winter. We have "traveled" on weekend winter camping trips all the way to 3 month expeditions in the North.
The weekend is organized by a committee of volunteers who are always scouting for ideas.
The Hulbert Outdoor Center, our host site, is located on Lake Morey in East Central Vermont. It is located on 1000 acres of countryside in the Upper Connecticut River Valley. Pre-registered meal packages are available in the Center's Dining Hall. You may stay in one of Hulbert's 6 cabins (quad occupancy), or bring your own traditional tent, or commute each day. One of the sessions during the weekend is the "Tour of the Tents" where the group can look at the many different styles of shelter.
Remember this is a pre-registered, pre-paid weekend only. It enrolls very quickly often with a waiting list. REGISTRATION BEGINS OCTOBER 1.
For more information, please see the information on this web page. Soon we will move to electronic registration, but for now you will need to print a form and mail it to Hulbert.
