Vermont is New England’s winter sports capital, and if careening downhill on skis or a snowboard isn’t your thing, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy playing in the fluffy white stuff. Snowshoeing is a fun, healthy way to enjoy the winter outdoors and new, lightweight materials make it easier than ever. Anyone who likes to walk or hike in the summer can snowshoe in the winter, as long as they’re prepared for the weather-it’s that simple.
This ancient form of hiking offers people of all ages and abilities a way to get out in nature to enjoy the mystery and serenity of Winter. Snowshoeing has come a long way since the eskimos strapped on wood frames with gut strings. Today, you can enjoy state of the art snowshoes which can be rented at many locations around Killington.
