Snowshoe Magazine
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."

Snowshoe, West Virginia: Namesake Snowshoeing

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.

Stratton, Vermont: A Top Snowshoe Destination

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.
