Embrace winter. Step into Snowshoes and Cross Country Skis!
When it comes to finding ways to be one with nature during winter in the Northeast, one of the simplest is to snowshoe. Trails and wide-open spaces are spread out the Old Forge area that are perfect for this easy-to-learn winter sport. Today’s snowshoes are super lightweight and give you the ability to float on the snow as you walk on even moderate grade terrain. There is nothing better than a crisp, sunny winter day with a blanket of fresh snow to make you forget that even though you’re walking—you’re burning up to 500 calories an hour. It’s an amazing workout for your quads, hips, glutes and hamstrings.
