it's very easy on simple terrain. You can get close to things you'd otherwise never be able to see. You'll walk alongside (and over) icicle covered streams and see crystals that change daily, if not hourly. This is all within walking distance from the Keystone River Runbase.
And, it's free for kids.
In the mornings, the meandering snowshoe trails are a fun place to explore. You won't feel like the crowds of the village are nearby. As the sun rises over the mountain, the effect on the crystals is awesome. Truly awesome, not the way many people use the word.
This is why I started snowshoeing - to get me to places to take pictures I wouldn't otherwise be able to take. See the photography section for some examples.
then we have a real big shew for you tonight (yes, I'm old. You have to be at least 55 to 60 to get that).
In Summit County, the snowshoe options are endless. I'll post some links to nearby snowshoeing. Do a search of the terms - you'll get lots of results.
They see a world they've never seen before. When skiing, your focus is on the skiing. Walking through the woods, they'll appreciate it in a way they never have before. I'll possibly go with you - it will warm my heart to see the wonder in your child's face.
We have two pairs of kids snowshoes - and they're free for kids with any adult purchase.
