Snowshoeing has been prevalent in New Hampshire for centuries and was once relied upon heavily as a means of travel throughout northern New England. Now, snowshoeing is an excellent recreation and an outstanding way for non-skiers to enjoy New Hampshire’s snowy winters. Snowshoeing is also an excellent way to stay in shape. 

With the invention of the snowmobile, snowshoeing became less common, being looked upon more as an activity one would do only out of sheer necessity. That is, until the concept of snowshoeing changed, making it a ‘sport’ rather than a means of transportation. Snowshoeing races are now an annual event in northern New England.
