Great pictures! Thanks! Very refreshing to see those amazing views from top O' the world! [8D]

I snowshoed once...being a desert dweller, and kept falling into holes. Some of them over my head. How do you know where and how to walk? I would walk along and suddenly....woomf... down five feet[:I]
my buddies laughing and pulling me out. That's why I don't want to go alone. I can't get anyone to go with me this winter. If I go alone, I know I will be one of those carcasses they find next spring... do ya have a "feel" for the snow under you? help!!

Hey Rented Mule, don't be discouraged by one bad experience on snowshoes. I've only been at it for 2 seasons and am continuing to learn something new every trip. Try to get snowshoes that are appropriate for your weight including any pack you are carrying (the manufacturer's websites or suppliers like MEC can help you here). You are going to sink in somewhat in dryer less consolidated snow. On a longer trip, to reduce fatigues, try to travel with a group, and if you are in deeper less consolidated snow, use a "leap frog" system so people take turns breaking trail (eg. sinking in on the flat or cutting stairs on a slope) for maybe 5 to 10 minutes before dropping back to the end of the group. I'm sure there are much more experienced people who can weigh in with tips for you. Keep trying - it is well worth it.

Thanks, SC! I love going out in the snow. Especially that muted world when it's snowing. I think the snowshoes I had were left over from Admiral Byrd's expedition. They were pretty old rentals.

Maybe I need "Training Wheels?" thanks again..[^]
