FBC February Gathering: Wintervale Funzies

Full Barrel Members are gathering at the annual Wintervale event to enjoy hot cocoa and snowshoe, cross-country ski demos, the fire pit, miles of trails for winter adventures, and more.

Wintervale runs 11am - 3pm. We plan to play 11:30 - 1:30 and then perhaps head to Four Quarters for post-adventures beer(s).

We hope you can join us! #getoutside

Find some full barrel folks by keeping your eye peeled for one of our super stylin’ FBC winter hats!

(if the weather is horrible, or the snow doesn't exist, the Intervale Center has posted 3/10 as a backup day for the event - https://www.intervale.org/sum-wint/)
