Topics: winter sports

Snowshoeing is one of the fastest growing winter sports. If you can walk, you can snowshoe. The old image of big wooden tennis racket snowshoes has given way to the lightweight, metal variety that not only let you get through deep powder, but can grip on icy terrain, making your hike safer and more enjoyable. Host Marianne Eaton visits the Green Mountain Club's Tenth Annual Snowshoe Festival in Waterbury to get a hands-on demo of the latest in snowshoe technology and take a couple of hikes through the powder.
