What is Snowshoeing
“Disconnect to reconnect.”
Snowshoeing is an activity that anyone can enjoy regardless of their skill level. It's a great way to get outside and explore during the winter months. Snowshoes distribute your body weight over a larger area, so you don't sink into the snow. Snowshoeing gear is relatively inexpensive and easy to find. Most sporting goods stores will carry snowshoes and poles. When choosing a pair of snowshoes, it's important to consider the type of terrain you'll be using them on. If you're planning on doing mostly flat trails, then a lighter pair of snowshoes will suffice. However, if you're planning on venturing into more mountainous areas, then a sturdier pair of snowshoes is necessary. There are also different types of bindings to consider.
Once you have your gear, the next step is to find a good location. Snowshoeing trails can be found in almost every state in the United States. Many state and national parks offer Snowshoeing trails. Some popular Snowshoeing locations include Yellowstone National Park and the Adirondack Mountains in New York, although you can pretty much snowshoe anywhere there is snow. The best part about Snowshoeing is that it's suitable for people of all ages and abilities. So whether you're looking for a new way to explore the great outdoors or just want to stay active during the winter, Snowshoeing is definitely worth trying out.
