8 Fabulous Places For Snowshoeing Fun In Colorado
For snowshoeing enthusiasts, there are some fabulous places to enjoy the snow in Colorado.
The Benefits of Snowshoeing
Snowshoeing isn't for everybody, but there are some great benefits that come with engaging in this wintertime activity.
For starters, snowshoeing is a great workout, burning anywhere from 400 to 1,000 calories per hour. That's twice the calories being burned as walking at the same speed. According to Renown Health, snowshoeing also involves low impact muscle building, endurance building, plus balance strengthening and agility.
Getting Close To Nature
That's all good, but the biggest benefit I can see in snowshoeing is being outdoors and enjoying the beauty of Colorado in the crisp mountain air. What a great way to connect with nature during the coldest months of the year.
Give It A Try
Personally, I've never been snowshoeing, but the thought of doing it is very intriguing. I love to be active and I love the outdoors. I don't love cold and snow, but, just maybe snowshoeing would change my entire outlook on winter. Maybe I will give it a try - but where should I go?
