I did a lot of snowshoeing over Christmas break. It’s my winter sport of choice! It’s simple and doesn’t require a lot of supplies and it’s inexpensive. You can rent snowshoes from places like REI and you really don’t need any gear other than the shoes! Do a quick Google search for snowshoeing trails near your home. Above, is one of the trails I went on a couple weeks ago. It’s the Mirror Lake trail up at Mt. Hood here in Oregon. Here are a few things you might want to be prepared with though, before you go out on the trail. I’ve also included my favorite picks for snowshoes.
