If you can walk, you can snowshoe and it's a great way to enjoy the white stuff, the mountains, and have a little off-piste adventure.
You don't have to be an avid skier or snowboarder to enjoy the snow and alpine scenery of New Zealand's mountains. And even if you are, snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the peace and serenity of the back country, away from the busy slopes.
Snowshoeing is simply walking in the snow. It used to bring to mind strapping on tennis racquet type contraptions to your boots. These days, snowshoes are slim-lined and more technical, enabling you to easily walk across snow without sinking up to your neck.
Suitable for all skill and fitness levels, snowshoeing is a fantastic option if you want to explore parts of the mountain not accessible for skiing or boarding and a guided tour would be your best bet for getting the most out of your snowshoeing experience.
