A guest to Lapland Lake shared her snowshoeing photos with us! Take a look and see the beautiful scenes from the trail as chronicled on January 24, 2015.
Snowshoes allow your weight to be distributed over a larger area so you float on the snow rather than sinking into it. Snowshoes come equipped with bindings that strap on over your own winter boots. We recommend wearing insulated, waterproof boots rather than ski boots (which are not designed for use with snowshoes). Gaiters are helpful to prevent snow from falling into your boots.
Snowshoeing is an aerobic sport, so you may find you will want to remove layers as you exercise. Taking along a rucksack and dressing in breathable layers, as you would for cross country skiing, is recommended. Be certain to pack a camera along with liquids and healthy snacks for your Adirondack snowshoe outing!
Weight and snow conditions will determine which snowshoe from our inventory will work best for you. Our staff will be happy to assist with fitting your boots into the snowshoe bindings. Some snowshoe enthusiasts prefer to use poles for additional balance. If you would like poles to use, please ask. There is no additional charge for rental of poles when you rent snowshoes from us.
Snowshoeing is yet another wonderful way to enjoy a crisp winter’s day here in our winter wonderland. Enjoy!
2″ of fresh snow yesterday and another 1 – 3″ on the way tomorrow! 34km groomed with trackset and skating lanes. Average 3-7″ base with 4 – 9″ in the woods. There are some thin spots. This 3-day holiday weekend your kids will love our Kids’ Club lessons, our Reindeer Rally fun games on skis, tubing on our junior hills & our popular Napa Kiikku ice sled ride on the pond!
