An outing on snowshoes is truly a unique experience, that brings those that participate in this adventure back to the past when snowshoes were the only way for people that lived in the mountains to move about during the winter, especially when there was a heavy snowfall.
Sliding along with snowshoes on an immaculate blanket of snow, enjoying the silence of the forest, discovering the many trails left behind by animals as they move about searching for food, will allow you to experience the mountain in a different manner than how a skier feels as he rushes down a slope. Why not give it a try?
