Thanks Jeff for taking us with you. Deep snow shoeing is tough going for sure… but usually worth the effort because of the beauty all around. Your pix just add to that even more. I really enjoyed them.

Are tracked ATV's popular in your part of the world? See a few here in Maine, but mostly snow sleds.

Those pictures were great, and almost made me want to go back to snow country.  It looked like you were using some of the aluminum snowshoes that have a fairly small footprint.  If most of your snowshoeing is in deep powder on trails or open ground consider investing in some trail shoes similar to these.

I used something similar to get around in Alaska for many years.  You won't sink in so far and they will track a bit better than some of the new small styles.

Those look very similar to my snow shoes I have at home, but I'd guess mine are less that 4 foot long. I was wearing Lou's snowshoes he keeps on his snow mobile for emergency.
