Snowshoes turn snow covered forests, lakes and mountains into a winter wonderland waiting to be explored. When shopping for a pair, start with where you want to go and what you want to do with them: up mountains, on mostly flat terrain, or maybe running. This will help filter between different materials, designs, features and cost. Then use the manufacturers’ size chart to figure out the right length of snowshoe for your weight. Tip: don’t forget to add anything you want to carry.
