If you can walk you can snowshoe.
Snowshoeing is easy and fun for all ages and fitness levels. It offers a great low impact, heart-healthy workout with little or no risk of injury. Plus no lessons or lift tickets required.
It’s EASY to learn and great for you.
Snowshoeing has shed its backwoods image and has become the fastest growing winter sport in America. The lighter more durable materials, streamlined shapes and easy to use bindings combine for more user friendly and efficient snowshoes. Today’s snowshoes appeal to athletes of all levels and are great for running, hiking or just plain walking. It’s an excellent, low-impact winter exercise.
You don’t need a lot of gear.
Besides the snowshoes themselves there is no special clothing or footwear required. You most likely own all the other gear and clothing that you need. Be sure to dress in layers, its aerobic so you will be warm but you will cool off quickly when you stop. A change of layers will help prevent body chill.
They take you where you want to go.
From a simple backyard stroll with your family to a solo challenging Mount Kearsarge adventure, your snowshoes will take you anywhere.
