Snowshoeing

WHAT TO WEAR
Dress in layers of lightweight breathable long underwear; then an absorbent layer of insulation – wool or fleece is best; and finally, wind resistant outerwear. Be prepared to be quite warm while moving and to cool off quickly once stopped. Warm, dry feet are essential – layer with silk or a comparable liner under a wool sock to wick moisture away from your skin. Many of the facilities listed also offer snowshoe rentals.

SNOWSHOE SAFETY
A day pack for essentials including ample water and food is highly recommended for long walks. Emergency first aid supplies are always a good idea. Extended hikers should advise friends or family as to destination and estimated time of return and check with the local weather service before setting out.

Be sure all equipment is in good repair prior to departure. It never hurts to carry a few repair materials in the unlikely event of an equipment problem.
