PARK CITY, Utah. — With COVID protocols cancelling the city’s annual Full Moon Snowshoe and indoor dinner at McPolin Farm this year, creative minds crafted a safe alternative: the Sunshine Snowshoe. This Friday, ticket-holders can take part in a two-mile expedition guided by naturalists and docents from Summit Land Conservancy, who will discuss the area’s history. After the snowshoe, a plant-based lunch, included in the $25 ticket price, will be served.
The trail is easy to intermediate, and snowshoes will be provided by White Pine Touring for those who don’t have their own equipment. Lunch will be served at distanced tables mostly outside – some tables are inside but will be near large, open sliding doors.
Only 25 tickets are available – the low number enables the event to comply with safe COVID practices as well as provide a meaningful docent-to-snowshoer ratio. Proceeds from the event benefit management of the farm, and contribute to things such educational signage for visitors. The trails are not normally open to snowshoers, making this is a unique opportunity.
The McPolin farm building is managed by the government of Park City, and 116 acres of land surrounding it is under a conservation easement that was granted to Summit Land Conservancy in 2007.
