This article was very helpful and I thought this would be the perfect article to read because were going to be snow shoeing more often than last year.
This article had all the basics of snow shoeing. It taught be that there are three main body parts to a snow shoe. It taught me that before you buy a pair then you should visualize how long and rough your treks with them will be which will help you choose a pair. I didn't know many of the important accessories for snow shoers that you should bring with you on treks which consisted of a first aid kit, snacks, poles and a headlamp for when it gets dark.
I'll be sure to use some of these techniques when we go on our snow shoe trip.
