• Snowshoeing is an incredible workout, burning 400-1000 calories an hour. A quick, high intensity jaunt before or after work is a great cure for the winter fitness lull.
• No pricey pass necessary! Find a snow-covered park or golf course or head out on your favorite trail. Be observant of posted signs and private property.
• Equipment is relatively inexpensive and easy to use. Shoes and poles can often be purchased as a package. Talk to your retailer about what types of terrain you will be tackling.
• Snowshoeing presents few safety hazards compared to its winter counterparts. Be careful of your footing, prepare properly, and be knowledgeable of avalanche hazards before heading into the backcountry.
• As a low-impact activity that is easy on joints, snowshoeing is truly a lifelong sport.
• Fido can come along!
• Snowshoeing can be great social time with friends and family, or provide welcome solitude during the hectic holiday season.
• Being outdoors provides numerous health and psychological benefits, and is a great way to enjoy your natural surroundings.
• Anyone can do it: if you can walk, you can snowshoe!
