Snowshoes - facts and tecniques

Snowshoes have an unbelievably wide application, and if you are harbouring a dream of experiencing the wilds in their winter-dress, snowshoes are no doubt one of the easiest short-cuts to the adventure. Snowshoes are slower than skis, when the terrain is level or slopes downwards, but in an undulating and impassable landscape they are at least as fast as skis. In particularly dense forest-areas snowshoes are considerably faster than skis. Test: Jens Bursell and Allan Ellemark, photoes: Jens Bursell, www.bursell.dk
