What Are Snowshoes?
Snowshoes are special footwear for walking on snow. If you try walking on soft, powdery snow in regular shoes, you’ll quickly sink into the white and find yourself unable to move. But with snowshoes, you can stroll as much as you want through snow-covered hills or forests that are usually inaccessible.
Why not strap on your snowshoes and go for a trek through freshly snow-covered nature scenes!
