Snowshoe Your Sand Dunes
By Chris Gorski
Being a snowshoer is a fun and exciting and can bring many opportunities that others may not have. Snowshoeing unlike many winter sports can be done practically anywhere there is snow, this means places you love in the summer are not off limits in the winter. Being from Michigan I have always loved going and spending time walking and hanging out at our states lovely sand dunes. I have now stumbled upon the fact they do and have allowed snowshoeing at most these great places.
Most sand dunes will offer snowshoers to walk their dunes and some have specific trails. For the most part you would have to bring your own equipment as many do not offer rentals. An inexpensive way to spend a beautiful day outdoors as most parks only charge admission to the park through a daily or yearly pass. Specific parks also offer guides that can show the best parts of the park, show animal tracks and chaperon you safely around.
You can typically find information on these programs if they exist either on the Internet or by simply calling your local park and asking some questions. Snowshoeing will continue to offer people new and exciting ways to do things and to see new people.
