Snowshoeing is your passport to winter enjoyment. No matter what age or fitness level, you can strap on a pair of snowshoes and discover the often-missed beauties of the cold season while becoming healthier, fitter, and stronger.

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.
The author of Snowshoeing Colorado and 23 other books, Claire Walter has also written numerous magazine articles on skiing, snowshoeing, scuba diving, and fitness. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.
