Snowshoeing near Loughbrow House
For what appear to be largely historical reasons, snowshoeing is a little-practised sport in Britain (or Europe for that matter), despite it being a more versatile (if slower) method of crossing a much wider variety of snow-covered countryside than is practicable by ski. In North America, on the other hand, snowshoes are widely used for anything from recreational outings to prolonged wilderness expeditions.
