Prepping for Your Snowshoeing Adventure
There are some important details to think about when it comes to snowshoeing, especially if you are a beginner. Make sure to pick the right kind of footwear to go on top of your snowshoes - a pair of comfortable waterproof boots are a great choice. Other than boots, all you need is outer wear that is fit for the current weather conditions.
