My first bucket list post!
I’ve been talking about snowshoeing every winter for years. Last year, a group of my friends went, but I was out of town for the weekend and missed it. I also have lived around snow (during the winter months, of course) my whole life, so it’s a little amazing that it took this long to cross this one off the bucket list.
Late Friday night, a good friend sent me a text to see if I wanted to go snowshoeing the next morning. I dropped everything to take advantage of this chance. Saturday morning, after some trial and error trying to borrow snowshoes, I ended up renting them from Sports Authority. In case you are worried that rental fees are a barrier to entry with this winter sport–don’t be. It was only $10 for the day! I think depending on the rental place, it varies from about $7-15. You can buy snowshoes for $100-200 if you fall in love with it 🙂
We met up with some friends, and up the canyons we went! After some struggles getting the snowshoes on (apparently I have issues with straps), we took pictures.
So there you have it! I have been invited to go snowshoeing again in a couple of days. I may have a new winter sport addiction 🙂
