Not only is snowshoeing wonderful but also easy to enjoy by anyone willing to practice it.
All throughout history, man has had to find a way to sort out the demands and the complications nature has presented in order to survive. Winter is one of the most uncomfortable seasons for men and it is in those sites where there is plenty of snow where the primitive tribes found out a way to move about easily: snowshoes.
Today, many winter centers all round the country (including beautiful San Martín de los Andes) offer visitors the chance to practice snowshoeing. Every year, new curious people and even expert skiers get back in contact with nature through this practice, just like our ancestors used to.
Upon entering the snowed ground, the snowshoes provide an unsuspected kind of pleasure. The sensation of stepping on soft powder snow is unique. Most circuits invite visitors to mingle with nature, capture its sounds, its feelings and experiences. Of course all this would not be possible at a higher speed.
