What is Snowshoeing?

Snowshoeing is an aerobic activity that involves walking through the snow.

Snowshoeing is a great workout. However, snowshoeing will cause you to use a lot of fluids in the process. Make sure you stay hydrated so you will have enough energy for the long haul.

If you have never participating in snowshoeing, a guided trip with a group is a great way to get started. The group will be able to give you tips and you can learn the location of different trails.

When you snowshoe, dress in layers so you can shed or add clothing as needed.

Preparing to Snowshoe

During the summer months, you can do aerobic exercises such as swimming, walking, running or cycling to help you get in great shape for snowshoeing.

What are the benefits of snowshoeing?

Snowshoeing is a great activity. It tones your entire body while providing an excellent cardiovascular workout; it strengthens leg and heart muscles and improves delivery of oxygen to muscles.

Before you head out on the slopes you should do some warm up exercises and a lot of stretching. Do your stretching before and after snowshoeing to minimize the pain.

Snowshoeing is a great way to stay healthy during the winter. At moderate speeds, snowshoeing burns between 400-500 calories per hour.
