A New Perspective on the Back Nine Two snow events in the last six days, and we have a winter-white landscape . . . good news for skiers (which I am not) and great news for snowshoe enthusiasts (which I am).
Snowshoeing is about as easy as walking, offering a good romp outdoors and an up-close look at the winter landscape.
Snowshoeing offers easy entry to a winter sport; we spotted our neighbor’s toddler strapped into a pair of snowshoes, confirming it's a sport for all ages (and abilities).
Aside from the snowshoes (and poles if you want), no special equipment is needed. Just a snow-covered landscape and your standard winter garb: hat, gloves, boots, sunglasses, and layered clothing.
If you have equipment, then you probably know that public golf courses, state parks, and public trails offer easy access. If you’ve never tried snowshoeing, go where equipment rentals are available.
