Not many years ago we worried and complained about lack of snow. Snowmobiles, toboggans and cross-country skis remained in storage. Now we worry and complain about too much snow with the word, “flood” entering most conversations. We do have choices – we can fret about the arrival of a too wet spring or concentrate on ideal conditions for winter sports. Let’s get out and enjoy what’s there for us.
Snowshoeing has much to offer with basically no learning involved. It’s as easy as walking! Once you’ve purchased a pair of snowshoes (available in various styles, sizes and prices) you just need some warm clothing and some sturdy boots for the snowshoes to strap on to. Poles are not necessary unless you have hills to climb and descend.
Take a quiet trail through the bush and enjoy the beauty of nature or make it a social event and go out with a group. There’s plenty of snow for everybody! – Eva Krawchuk writes from Winnipeg
