Has REI considered starting a Get Outdoors Hiking/Snowshoeing Club? Here in Colorado we have some clubs such as the CMC, but they are few and often times not near by. I think it would be really cool to have clubs near the REI locations. It would also be awesome to offer educational events for club members.
I understand that REI offers occasional outings, but it would be nice to have activities on a weekly basis.
@Mandomusic thank you for reaching out!
Currently, we do not have a hiking/snowshoeing club in the state of Colorado. But we’re always looking for ways of getting people outside. We hear you and will pass your suggestion over to our outdoor school team.
We do, however, offer educational classes. Check out the classes and local outings by selecting the nearest store to you.
Additionally, have you considered using the Local Happenings tab? This might be a great way for you to connect with other people in your community!
Hope this helps!
