Why snowshoeing?

If you are new to winter sports, and specifically snowshoeing, you may be wondering what the benefits are. In addition to snowshoeing being incredibly fun, there are also several health and recreational benefits. For example:

  • Easy to learn
  • Very little equipment needed
  • Can be done just about anywhere
  • Excellent way to burn calories
  • Great lower body strength and conditioning
  • Easy on joints (low impact)
  • Experience the health benefits of time in nature

One more unique reason to consider trying a snowshoeing Watoma, WI experience is that it can be done by just about any age and ability. If a person can walk, he or she can snowshoe! It’s that simple.


Equipment & Preparation

As we just mentioned, you’d be hard pressed to find a winter sport that’s simpler than snowshoeing. This is true even when we discuss the topic of equipment needs. Over half of what we recommend is already needed for just about any outdoor activity. Beyond that, there are only two items you need. The total list is as follows:

  • Layered, moisture-wicking clothing
  • Waterproof boots
  • Outdoor protective gear (jacket, hat, mittens)
  • Water bottle
  • Snowshoes
  • Poles (optional)

Preparation includes locating a trail or area you will be snowshoeing in. If you are unfamiliar with the area, you may also want to include in your equipment list a map and compass or a cell phone with strong navigation capabilities. If you are planning on being in a remote area, inform someone of your plans and your estimated beginning and ending times/locations.
