6 Tips for Snowshoeing With Kids

  • Be flexible and patient. Snowshoeing can be more strenuous than hiking. Having to pick up the weight of the snowshoes with little feet can tire a child out. Don't set out for a long hike on the the first trip and remember that you might need to keep a slower pace. Be prepared to turn around if they're unhappy; you want this to be a memorable experience, and one they'll want to repeat.
  • If possible, find an already groomed path. With the trail plowed and the snow packed down, it's easier and less strenuous.

Most of all have fun and take the time to enjoy snowshoeing with your family. Don't forget to bring a camera too. You never know where your snowshoeing trip will take you, perhaps to a wintery scenic overlook.
