Description Have you ever wondered how snow shoes work? Come out and try on a pair. We will teach you how to put them on, how to walk, how to turn and how to get back up once you fall down. We will play some games and take a walk. You will be a pro in no time. Dress for the weather and be sure and wear boots with a large sole if possible. The bigger and heavier the boot, the better the snowshoes stay on.
