snow shoe walking
Technique of snow shoe walking
The technique of snowshoeing is not complicated. You should put your feet a little wider than with normal walking, so you don't trip over your own feet. But you don't have to take extremely long strides. The snowshoes just drag through the snow. Descending through powder snow is a whole new experience. You can surf with long strides through the snow. If you fall you will land in a soft bed of snow.
