Snowshoeing has seen an explosion in popularity lately and it isn't hard to figure out why. Snowshoeing can be an incredible physical workout, or it can be a perfect relaxing stroll through the snow-hushed woods. Its also not an expensive sport.  And, being portable, snowshoeing can be an individual thing or it can be an event for the whole family.

Snowshoeing, Where To Go
You can go snowshoeing almost anywhere, just don't go directly on the packed cross-country ski trails.  If you are following a xc ski trail, stay off to the side please. Many of the resorts and trails in our Resorts and Ski Areas section are also perfect for snowshoeing.
