The author's comments: "There ain't no fat snowshoers." That observation was made by one of my snowshoeing companions many years ago, and it's as true now as it was when I ran traplines on snowshoes as a kid. I love snowshoeing because snowshoes are still the only vehicle on which one can negotiate the deepest snows in the most rugged terrain, but snowshoeing is probably the best cardiovascular workout a human can get. Breaking trail in powder burns roughly 1,000 calories per hour, or twice as much energy as either running or biking. For a snowshoer, counting calories means having plenty of high-carbohydrate snacks in the daypack. So if you're concerned about gaining those extra pounds that everyone seems to put on in winter, ask for a pair of snowshoes and a copy of The Snowshoer's Handbook for Christmas this year.
