Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy invites you to join us for the 14th Annual Pennsylvania Championship Snowshoe Race at Spring Mount Ski Area. This year's event is shaping up to the best ever! We have a great course, a great cause, and a great after-party! 

Registration begins at 7 am. The race begins at 8 am sharp! The Snowshoe 5k is great for pros, newbies, kids, runners and walkers alike. Bring your own snowshoes or rent a pair from us for just $10 (while supplies last). After the race, Boardroom Spirits of Lansdale will be providing hot rum cider for those over 21 (with valid ID) and cider without the punch for those too young to belly up to the bar.
