I was never quite into snowshoeing in the past. If I was up in the mountain in the winter I would be on a snowboard. However, after my daughter was born I realized snowboarding isn't a great family sport for a 6 month old. I still wanted to hang out in British Columbia's beautiful mountains but needed something more family friendly and snowshoeing worked great, we got a 20$ sled to drag Josephine in and rented snow shoes. We did it three times last year and I plan to do it a lot more in the future, a great winter activity!
