How about a little snowshoeing?

With snow flying in some parts of the country, we think it is time to talk about one of the best ways to burn calories and enjoy Mother Nature during the winter, besides shoveling the white stuff.  We have a great guest lined up for this broadast, Sarah Rose from Tubbs Snowshoes.  Be sure to tune in and listen to Sarah share her extenisve knowledge and passion for all things related to snowshoeing.

I first began to snowshoe when I was attending college in the UP of Michigan where the average snowfall is 300+ inches and the winter scenery of the Keewenaw Peninsula is best enjoyed while quietly snowshoeing through the forest along Lake Superior.  One time when I took off my snowshoes to take a break, I had forgotten how much snowshoes keep you above the snow and quickly found myself in waist deep snow and crawling back onto my snowshoes.

And when I transfered to Utah State I had the great opportunity to snowshoe in the Wasatch Mountains.  To this day I can remember walking through a large open area in an attempt to eat my lunch on top of a single sun drenched large rock in the expansive opening.   Upon my return to campus my local friends told me I had walked across a lake out to an island.  They were guessing there was at least 10' of snow on the ground in the area i had visited that day.  The clear blue skies, crisp cold air and untracked snow was one of my most memorable times spent outside.

So I invite you to stop by and share your thoughts about snowshoeing and take advantage of this opportunity to talk Sarah who represents one of the leaders in the snowshoe industry.
