Snowshoing Tips

  • Don't overdo it. If you feel tired then stop.
  • Always check your gear, before you go:
    • Check to make sure your snow poles telescoping properly.
    • Look for cracks in your snowshoe bindings.
    • Make sure someone at home knows where you are.
    • Duct tape for emergency patchwork on snow shoes and snow poles
  • Trail
    • Make sure you have survival gear.
    • Are you familiar with the terrain?
    • Do you need a map?
    • Make sure someone at home knows where you are.
  • Breaking the Trail:
    • Try to snowshoe with other people. It is safer than going alone.
    • If you snowshoe in a group, take turns leading so you won't tire out too quickly.
    • When you lead:
      • take into consideration the pace of the slowest member of the group.
      • make your steps short enough so everyone in the group can follow in them.
    • When you follow:
      • stay in the leader's footsteps whenever possible. Following in the leader's footsteps will help you conserve your energy and retain a better, well-defined trail for those who follow you.
  • Take breaks, as necessary, to make adjustments to your clothing.
  • Dress in layers.
  • Use sunscreen.
  • Take frequent breaks to drink water and eat something.
