SNOWSHOE SERIES PART 3 CLOTHING

Clothing for snowshoeing

3 days of snowshoe backpacking the Little Elbow trail in freezing weather - tent camping in the snow

Chef Evan Robertson and I hiked all 30+ km of the Little Elbow trail this weekend. We started at the Elbow Pass trail head on Highway 40. We camped at Tombstone on night 1. The temperature that evening was -16C and dipped below -20C at night. Day 2 we hiked through the pass and stopped at Romulus for the second night. That night we were able to hang out around a fire without gloves as the temperature climbed to a balmy -2C. We hiked out on day 3 to the Little Elbow Campground on highway 66 south of Bragg Creek.

Once again we enjoyed some gourmet cooking, courtesy of Evan.

Snowshoe Hiking - the new dimension in snowshoe hiking

Crossblades are a completely new kind of snowshoe system that allow the wearer to both walk and climb as well as ski and glide. After a strenuous climb, you get your reward: Instead of suffering a strenuous descent down the mountain, simply switch the Crossblades settings over to “ski and glide”.

The technique can be mastered in no time at all. Beginner skiers should try gliding over easy ground to begin with and increase gradually. Crossblades give snowshoe hiking a whole new lease of life, so you can have more fun when you’re out and about in the great outdoors. Plus, “crossblading” requires less effort than with conventional snowshoe systems: Crossblades are pushed instead of lifted up with each step.
