Q:

I'd like to gift a day trip snowshoe outing to a couple that have a baby. Would it be doable for a baby to go with his parents on a day trip snowshoe adventure if they wanted to bring him along?

Angela L.  asked on  Dec 15, 2012

A:

Interesting question. I would tend to lean towards no... However, it would really depend on how fit, capable, and prepared the parents are (and how much the weather cooperates on there day's adventure). Fit- can the parents carry the baby while snowshoeing (do they have the appropriate baby back-packs, etc) Prepared- proper materials to keep said baby warm and taken care of- there are no restrooms out on the trail (some trail heads have restrooms, some do not- no garbage cans out there for diapers or other trash) Weather- we still go out if its windy and snowy. we will do our best to stay in the trees and out of the wind, but adult bodies adjust for cold inclement conditions far better than children and babies do. Another last thought would be purchasing space for the child (car seat takes up a space in our vehicles). Or prior arranging to meet at the appropriate trial head.

Q:

can a family with two boys,ages 6 & 9 both of whom are proficient on skis and snow boards, use the 3 hour nighttime groupon offer?

Lynda  asked on  Dec 16, 2012

A:

Yes, however, the groupon vouchers are only good for oner person. So one parent would have to buy a voucher for themselves and then buy a second voucher as a "gift" for child 1. Then the other spouse would have to buy a voucher for themselves and a second one as a "gift" for child 2. if you have any more questions please feel free to call us at (866) 936-0910

Q:

Is the tour kid-friendly? What's the min age you would recommend? Thanks!

Gabriela O.  asked on  Dec 17, 2012

A:

We go off ability levels more than age. We've had 10 y/o's and 60+ y/o's :) My cousins 10y/o wouldn't like our adventures at all, but i've seen 8 y/o's rock our trips. All about ability and great attitude from the participants.

Q:

What is the minimum age ?

Alexandra N.  asked on  Dec 17, 2012

A:

No min or max age. We go more off of ability than age. We've had 10 y/o's and 60+y/o's. I know 10 y/o's that wouldn't enjoy our trips, but I've seen 8 y/o's rock our snowshoe adventures :)

Gabriela O.  asked on  Dec 15, 2012

A:

We go more off of ability than we do age. we've had 8 y/o's and 60+ y/o's. Our day and night snowshoe adventures are very much kid of ALL ages friendly, so long as they have the ability and great attitude :) Out "Day Tours" (the Columbia River Gorge Full Day Tour, and Mt Hood Full Day Tour) are slightly less kid friendly because we have a few winery visits in there (tasting fees included), but we also visit museums and other awesome places that are very kid friendly!!!

Q:

one more question, is there an age limit for this deal. Karen

Karen B.  asked on  Dec 14, 2012

A:

Our adventures surround the idea of ability more so than age. We've had 10 year olds and 60+ year olds on our adventures. The real key is proper clothing systems and a great attitude :) I know 10 year olds that wouldn't enjoy our trips one bit, but we've had 8 year olds on them that had the time of there lives! For the day snowshoe, your looking at around 2 hrs snowshoeing, lunch, snowshoe, snacks, snowshoe, head home. Night .

Q:

How difficult is it to book a tour? I am considering of purchasing this for college students, who have limited free time, so their available days may be few. Karen

Karen B.  asked on  Dec 14, 2012

A:

It's very easy to book- 1) Just buy the groupon voucher, 2) call (866) 936-0910 or email info@rareearthadventures.com - with the date(s) that you would like to try and book and your voucher #s. To see the available trips, check our calendar page at http://rareearthadventures.com/calendar-2/
