I'll be the first to agree that one of the joys of snowshoeing is silence. With the only sounds often being the swoosh of my snowshoes in powder or - when I stop - my breathing. Quite simply, snowshoeing is one of my favorite "silent sports."
I somehow found it quite appropriate that I tried snowshoeing for the first time at a place called Snowshoe Mountain (http://www.snowshoemtn.com). Wouldn't it seem logical that somewhere named "snowshoe" would have great snowshoeing? It did - and does.
One of the many things I love about Stratton (http://www.stratton.com) is the variety of activities at the base and up on top. That includes snowshoeing big-time.
You could spend days exploring Stratton's varied "on-property" options, as well as nearby possibilities just a short four-wheel drive off the mountain. Quite simply, Stratton has to be one of the top snowshoeing destinations in the Northeast.
