Snowshoeing takes you right into the heart of snow-covered terrain. We explain which rules you need to follow, how to walk properly in snowshoes and which gear to choose.

When you’re snowshoeing, you’re almost walking on top of the snow. You hardly sink in, which allows you to cover longer distances through the snowy terrain. Here, we’ve got answers to the big questions about what equipment you need, how snowshoes work and what to watch out for in deep snow.
