Five easy pieces! No, not the famous Jack Nicholson film riding “The Fast Lane on the Road to Nowhere,” but rather the five United States Snowshoe Association and the International Snowshoe Federation racing posters on the road to the finish line, fitness and fun, fun, fun! Click them, enjoy them, then print them. Use paper if you want to distribute them or posterboard if you want to mount them on the wall. I’m comfortable someone will develop a poster montage so send an image of your work to me [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Snowshoe Magazine will publish it with your credit on Facebook. Just note this article title in the subject part of the email. There’s never been a bigger year for snowshoeing in North America, so decorate now. Here is a preview of what you will find:

Mark Elmore for the USSSA and the ISSF encourages all to “Post these flyers and posters in your stores and places of business. Pass them along to friends in the military. Pass them along to high school and college coaches in your areas. Distribute these at your events and announce and promote them all season long. We want to see our 2015 National Snowshoe Championships in Eau Claire and the Winter World Masters Games be the biggest and best yet.”
