In "The Snowshoe Experience, " Claire Walter acts as a snowshoeing personal trainer, showing novices how to get maximum enjoyment out of an ancient wintertime activity that has become today's coolest cold-weather sport. This is an activity kids, adults, and even seniors can do. Athletes will find that it's a great way to stay in shape during the winter. Couch potatoes will find that it's fun enough to lure them outside. And kids adore it. Snowshoeing is truly a sport for everyone. Walter insists that if you can walk, you can snowshoe. Walter takes you, step-by-step, through the basics so you'll feel at ease--whether you are tramping across an open meadow or an urban park. And if you want to kick it up a couple notches, Walter discusses hiking in snowshoes, running in snowshoes (she supplies a list of places where you can find snowshoe races), and back-country adventures with snowshoes--including winter camping.Whether you want a quiet walk across the snow, an adrenaline rush, or anything in between, "The Snowshoe Experience" is the one book that helps you do it all.
