The Wilderness Supply Co. staff will offer an interactive and engaging presentation teaching you the skills you need to enjoy spring in Manitoba, including:

  • The right types of outdoor gear/clothing for winter activities (including down vs synthetic)
  • How to dress appropriately for winter (including layering!)
