Tramp an ancient path

Snowshoes are the classic invention of northern travellers, still in use by traditional folk on the trapline or to gather wood at camp. Recently, snowshoes have gone technical for sports enthusiasts.  An afternoon on snowshoes gets you close to the heart and true nature of the Northwest Territories. With some practice, you could be ready to break trail for skiers or a dogteam. And if you think your technique is up to par, join a fun race in one of our communities at carnival time!
