Bigfoot Glowshoe

Michigan Tech Student Health and Wellness and the Outdoor Adventure Program bring you the Bigfoot Glowshoe event for the second year. 

The 21st annual Bigfoot event will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8 at the Michigan Tech Trails. This is a recreational snowshoe event for both beginners and avid enthusiast, children and adults of all ages. It isn't a race, rather a great opportunity to get outdoors, get active and enjoy the winter weather with friends and family. Snowshoe the 2k trails at your own pace and enjoy the lights of the path and others out taking part in the event.  

Held in conjunction with Winter Carnival, this event promotes a healthy and active lifestyle for our community.  The rate for students and children under 12 is $5, and $15 for adults and community members (Bigfoot shirts available for an additional $5 online through the registration process). 

Students will be asked to show their student id at check-in. If shirts were ordered during pre-registration, they will be available for pick up at the event. For questions, contact Student Health and Wellness at 7-2560 or

Snowshoes will be available from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (time slots will be assigned during registration), we ask that parties be mindful of time and keep to their assigned schedule. Included in the registration fee is a snowshoe rental for the evening, glow sticks, chili provided by Michigan Tech Dining Services, access to the marked trails for the evening, warm beverages and a glowing awesome time. Bigfoot shirts are available for purchase on or before 10 p.m. Monday (Jan. 29) through the online registration process.
