Snowshoeing is an easy and fun winter sport. It's as simple as strapping some snowshoes onto your winter boots, bundling up, and find a nice spot to walk.
Snowshoes are inexpensive to rent, too, and no lessons are needed. Ski poles are optional, though you might find them helpful if you feel a little unstable with your footing. And it’s impossible to get lost if you just follow your own tracks back.
Naturally, some places are better than others for snowshoe exploration, but we are in no shortage of prime areas in and near Draper. Be aware of safe zones and avalanche hazards, and enjoy some relaxed winter fun!
