Choosing Snowshoes, Snowshoeing Tips & Techniques

Snowshoes & Snowshoeing


Snowshoes and snowshoeing instruction

Carl Heilman has been involved in the sport of snowshoeing ever since making his first pair of snowshoes in the early 1970's. He has written numerous articles on the subject and has also published a booklet on making snowshoes (unnavailable until fall 2004). He's been leading beginner's and advanced snowshoeing workshops for the Adirondack Mtn. Club and the Appalachian Mtn. Club since the mid 1980's and has also done programs and workshops for many other organizations and schools throughout the northeast. He has also led snowshoe clinics for the major outdoor industry trade show held each winter in Salt Lake City.

Carl handcrafted his 'high-tech' traditional snowshoes until 1997, and has also done some snowshoe design consulting work with major manufacturers. His snowshoes have been used all over the world, and some of his ideas for snowshoe design have been incorporated into commercial designs. While he enjoys passing along his expertise on snowshoeing and winter travel, he especially enjoys seeing folks turn-on to the sport after using snowshoes for the first time!

The following pages are a result of his trying to help demystify the sport of snowshoeing and choosing snowshoes. Each facet of snowshoes and snowshoeing has been broken down into it's simplest components. Hopefully this will help provide a better understanding of snowshoes so folks can more easily choose snowshoes that are best suited for them, and help them take those first steps in the snow with confidence! Remember, If You Can Walk, You Can Snowshoe!!
