Dress for the elements!
- Choose insulated, waterproof footwear that matches your snowshoeing style – Waterproof hiking boots, casual winter boots or even waterproof trail-running shoes, in case you plan to go for a jog. Shoes should not have a big heel.
- Bring or rent overboots from us if you plan to snowshoe in deep snow to keep your feet dry.
Clothing / Accessories:
- Dress in layers that can be taken off easily, wear a zippered top to regulate body heat
- Snowshoeing is a physical exercise. Choose technical wear or wool instead of cotton to keep your body climate comfortable.
- Wear long underwear
- Wool socks or wool/silk combination socks are ideal, cotton socks are not recommended.
- Waterproof jacket (with breathable waterproof fabrics) will keep you dry and protect you from cold winds.
- Bring gloves, a hat, sunglasses (or goggles), sunblock, maybe some snacks and a camera!
