The winter blues settle in when people get sick of staying indoors, watching the same reruns, and knitting tiny mittens for their house centipedes. Get back to nature and out of that teeming lair of insects with today’s Groupon to Local Motion Outfitters in Cedarburg. Rentals include snowshoes, poles, and gaiters. Half-day sessions run from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a half-day snowshoe rental for two (a $60 value).
- For $55, you get a half-day snowshoe rental for four ($120 value).
Groupon-holders can schedule their outing on a date of their choice and pick up their snowshoe rentals at Local Motion Outfitters, or they can participate in one of Local Motion’s pre-scheduled outings at area parks and trails. An employee will be at the pre-scheduled outings to hand out snowshoe equipment. Click here for a complete list of times and parks.
The accommodating staff at Local Motion Outfitters encourages visitors to feel the open breeze comb through their hair while exploring the great outdoors on premium bicycles, kayaks, and snowshoes. Before embarking on half-day adventures, hikers strap Tubbs snowshoes to their feet, wrap water-repelling gaiters over their ankles, and grab a pair of poles for jousting with territorial moose. Once properly equipped, trailblazers can head out to a path of their choice or attend a pre-scheduled park outing that routes snow-walkers through beautiful Wisconsin scenery. Sightseeing outdoorsfolk can admire the frosty carved hills at the Kettle Moraine loop or stomp their way through the glazed-over pathways of Kohl Park—a National Recreation Trail. While traversing snowdrifts and building igloos for snowmen, hikers tune into podcasts to fill their ear canals with thought-provoking tidbits about each trail, such as facts on the area’s unique history, flora, and fauna.
