A alternative to cross country skiing, for those who are looking to get out in nature without necessarily breaking a sweat, is snowshoeing. Historians believe the first snowshoe was built around 4000-6000 years ago in Central Asia. They allow the user to travel in deep snow that may otherwise be impossible to cross. They’ve gone from being a necessity in travel and trade, to an extremely popular recreational activity, especially in recent years. Lake Lauzon is a great place for the snowshoe enthusiast.
