Snow Fun in February

by Organic Spa Magazine

We snowshoe and so should you!

Taking a trip to a relaxing Ski Lodge Resort isn’t just about skiing or snowboarding anymore. For those of us who enjoy long, brisk nature walks to appreciate nature, snowshoeing is a great alternative. It has grown in popularity recently, so we wanted to know why. Why rent snowshoes instead of snowboards?

*It’s a great way to stay in shape and work on improving cardiovascular fitness. Burning 45 percent more calories than walking or running is a positive for that February weight goal. According to research provided by Snowsports Industries America, when combined with a healthy diet, snowshoeing is bound to keep you fit.

*Snowshoeing is enjoyed by a high percentage of women and children. It’s inexpensive, and racing through the fresh, winter air on snowshoes can be just as much fun as skiing down a mountain. Plus, the risk of injury is low and exerting those extra stores of energy on a hike with fresh powder on the ground is so much better than sitting around.

Anywhere there is snow to be found, a snowshoe experience is a must for lovers of winter winds. So book a stay at your favorite ski spa and pack your warmest parka before the snow melts.
