Snow Walkers Rendezvous

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 which is held every November at the Hulbert Outdoor Center in Fairlee, VT. 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 local weekend winter camping trips all the way up to three month expeditions in the North.

The weekend is organized by a committee of volunteers who are always scouting for ideas.

For more information or to share your ideas, email us here.

The 25th Snow Walkers Rendezvous was held on November 8 - 10, 2019.
