Speaker offering winter backcountry tips at Creston library

Web Lead

The next installment of the Creston Valley Public Library’s Great Outdoors speaker series is “Backcountry Snowmobiling Basics” with Trish Drinkle. This Dec. 10 presentation will appeal to a wide range of enthusiasts of the winter outdoors — snowmobilers, backcountry skiers, photographers and more.

Drinkle is the president of the Kokanee Country Snowmobile Club, the past-president of the Association of British Columbia Snowmobile Clubs and an active steward for the sport of snowmobiling. She will help explain how to stay safe and enjoy our mountain snowmobile experience. Technical advice, safety tips, avalanche awareness and more will be presented during this night of adventure. Whether you are a first-time rider, a trail rider, accessing the winter back country for photography or skiing, or a passionate mountain free ride snowmobiler, Drinkle will help keep you on track and ready to ride.

The Library’s Great Outdoors series will run once per month for the next several months. Watch for upcoming topics, “Bee Hive Yourself”, “Herbs in the Wild” and “Fifty Years of Fly-fishing”. For more information contact the library at 250-428-4141.
