It’s been a wonderful winter so far, as we’ve been getting quite a bit of snowfall. Freshly fallen snow is a key component for snowshoeing. The shoes help to distribute your weight over a large flat area which creates this type of ‘floating’ above the surface.
Choosing your snowshoe is also important as there are three different styles of snowshoes.
Flat terrain is best for those starting out with snowshoeing. They’re Perfect for families and those looking for a casual stroll through the snow. Rolling-terrain snowshoes are for those who want to get off the beaten track. Most hikers and backpackers like to choose this type of snowshoe. Mountain terrain is for those experienced hikers who want to walk on icy or steep terrain.
Some great snowshoeing locations include the Superior Hiking Trail (main office located in Two Harbors), any of our State Parks: Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock Lighthouse, Tettegouche (to name a few), and many trails throughout Two Harbors.
If you enjoy hiking in the summer or fall, you’ll love snowshoeing throughout state parks and trails around the upper Midwest. Snowshoeing brings a new definition of winter hiking. What you’ll need is a great pair of winter boots, warm clothing with layers (items you’d wear to ski), and of course your snowshoes!
