Did you go skiing?

January 5, 2021

This was the question we were asked all day. Hate to break it to ya but we were the nerds snowshoeing yesterday! It is something that I can tick off my list but it’s probably more of a one time thing.

So here’s the scoop….

  • Have a plan on where you’re snowshoeing: We didn’t and it would’ve been a game changer
  • Don’t be afraid to ask the rental place or even locals for trail recommendations
  • Make sure you know how to put on the shoes before leaving the rental place
  • If you’re going for a long time, bring a little backpack with water and a few snacks
  • Wear touch screen gloves if you’re planning on taking picture
  • It’s more of a workout then you think… the new snowshoes are like wannabe skis (lol) & they aren’t the lightest thing. However it definitely makes a difference walking in deep snow. Avoid walking in shallow snow, it’s like nails on a chalkboard
  • The new snowshoes don’t look like tennis rackets & you’re equipped with poles (don’t leave them in the parking lot like I did by accident lol don’t worry I rescued them!!)

As long as you have a destination, might as well try it for sh*ts & giggles. Honestly my best friend and I went, had no clue where we were going and just laughed our butts off. We went up to Whistler & although we would have rather skied (it’s pricey,especially as a student!), we had a hilarious experience.

Sending love around the world,

Taylor
