Second Annual Grand Lake Snowshoe Festival – Snowshoeing with the Legendary Tom Sobal

"Since I don't see any logs around..." Tom Sobal says, then lies down in the street so we can practice stepping over him in our snowshoes. Not many instructors would lie prone in the snow for their students. Then again, there aren't many snowshoe instructors like Sobal, whose amazing resume includes top honors in snowshoeing, trail running and burro racing. He holds the world's best time for a 26.2 mile marathon on snowshoes (3:06:17), and has won 140 snowshoe races, including the grueling 100-mile Ididasport in Alaska.
