MSR (Mountain Safety Research), the Seattle-based manufacturer of high-performance outdoor equipment, has provided outdoor enthusiasts with tools to get out and explore snow-covered terrain since 1969. Join MSR on January 12, 2013, for the 18th annual Winter Trails Day and enjoy a day of free snowshoeing and cross-country skiing at one of the almost 100 participating resorts and Nordic Centers nationwide.

MSR has sponsored the Snowsports Industries America (SIA) Winter Trails event since its inception in 1995. Roughly 11,000 kids and adults get on the snow each year. Participants will be able to test MSR's snowshoe collection-—including adult and youth models—and experience firsthand the collection's superior traction, versatility, and ergonomic efficiency.

“Winter Trails Day brings our love of wintertime adventures to those who love exploring the backcountry as much as we do,” said Jane Mauser, marketing director for Alpine & Snow Tools at MSR. “The annual festival makes snowshoeing and cross-country skiing accessible to beginners, as well as celebrates the sport with longtime enthusiasts. MSR is privileged to be a part of this event and we're honored that our products help make these adventures possible.”
