Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing involves walking or running over soft snow without sinking in, using a lightweight, typically-oblong platform that straps on each of the user’s feet.  They were once used for transportation but now are used mostly for recreation and fitness.  It is a great way to use paved or less improved trails or get into back country areas when there is snow on the ground.  The types of snowshoes that are used can depend on whether the terrain is flat, hilly or mountainous.  If it’s a snowy winter, find an event near you where you can rent snowshoes and give them a try!  At some Get Outdoors PA events, you can even make your own.
