I used to dread winter and its ominous presence before I started snowshoeing. Mostly, I became enthralled with how I could explore winter. My snowshoes became my gateway to amazement. I love to spread the love of snowshoeing. Yep, that’s right. A lot of love right there.
- The scenery will knock your socks off
It’s true. I’ve lost a good couple of pairs of Merino wool socks on some vistas. Ok, not really, but it could have happened! Some of the most mesmerizing views I have ever seen have been reached by snowshoes.
- You meet new people
With new hobbies, comes new friends. With a growing fan base of the sport, you will find more organized hikes and clubs available for you to join
- The best exercise
If you can walk, you can snowshoe! That doesn’t mean it’s as easy, however. Snowshoeing is the best for burning that pesky body fat during those winter months. The benefits are not limited to that either. Snowshoeing is a full body work out and you can even burn up to 1,000 calories an hour!
- Explore new places
Is there a hike you have always wanted to try? Why not try it with snowshoes! Being able to snowshoe gives you a great reason to plan that weekend getaway that you have been craving. Link up with some new snowshoe friends and snowshoe your way out to a yurt for a fun one of a kind experience.
5. It brings your family together
Breaking up the monotony with an active, exciting snowshoe adventure creates lasting memories filled with giggles and family photo ops. Still deciding on your family’s holiday card photo? Snowshoeing has got your back for that.
6. It may turn winter into your favorite season
As I mentioned, I despised winter. You know that one school photo where your braces are beaming and your acne is standing to attention? Winter was that year of school, while summer was the senior portrait with great hair and your favorite shirt. Not anymore. Since discovering snowshoeing, I look forward to winter. Winter can be long and dreary without a seasonal activity. Don’t fall into that winter rut. Snowshoeing will keep your spirit light and make those winter months go by in a flash.
