First timer’s guide to snowshoeing


This article like the title is a first timer’s guide to snowshoeing. It explains what material to buy and how to do it and different tips. The sport is easy to learn, it not that expensive (compared to other winter sports),and  not much risk of injury and is a great way to exert energy during the cold winter months. According to research provided by Snowsports Industries America (SIA), 40.8 percent of snowshoers are women (a number that is increasing rapidly), 9.4 percent of snowshoers are children (ages 7-11), and 44.2 percent of snowshoers are ages 25-44.

Before reading this article I never really was that much into snowshoeing but then I read that there are such things as snowshoeing races which I thought was pretty cool. This artcile changed my behavior because before I read this article I found that snowshoeing was pretty boring but i have as different take on this now though.
