Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing has recently become very popular as a way of getting around on snow, even though it originated many centuries ago. Snowshoes work by distributing the weight of the person over a larger area so that the person's foot doesn't sink completely into the snow, a quality called "flotation". Snowshoeing opens up routes, tracks and paths into the most beautiful of winter countrysides, and is a great family activity..
