When do I need snowshoes?

Braving the Winter Weather

It's certainly an adventure camping or hiking in the winter weather. However, it's important to have the proper winter wear, including winter hiking pants and snowshoes. Snowshoes enable you walk over deep snow by distributing your weight over a larger area. They strap onto the bottoms of your hiking boots or shoes. Many are made with frames of hardwood or a similar material. Leather straps function to keep you from sinking into the snow.
