Wondering How To Dress? We recommend layering as though you are going for a run in the winter. Base layers (long underwear), with windproof and breathable outer layers are ideal. Snowshoeing is an aerobic activity, and because you are not sitting on a chairlift and you are active the whole time, it is much easier to stay warm. Check out the photos in the slideshow for our recommendations on how to layer.
