  Winter has a special ability to take otherwise unremarkable scenery and turn it into a sparkling wonderland.  one of the best ways to enjoy these otherworldly landscapes is by exploring them on snowshoes.

People have been using snowshoes to get around in the winter for thousands of years.  The snowshoes work by spreading a person's weight over a wider area, allowing them to avoid sinking into deep snow.  Snowshoes were essential footwear for fur traders and other early explorers whose survival depended on the ability to navigate deep snow.

Classic snowshoes were made with a wooden frame, rawhide webbing, and leather foot straps to keep the shoes secured to the feet.  Today, there are a wide range of materials used in snowshoe making.  Some of the most popular include lightweight metal or plastic.  Snowshoes have also gotten smaller over time, making it much easier for people to learn how to use them without falling down or overexerting themselves.


In addition to backyard trails, many state and national parks open special snowshoe paths during the winter months.  Since these trails are well-maintained, it becomes even easier to stay above the snow and enjoy hikes through the winter woods.
