Using Walking Poles to Snowshoe?

Some of our pole owners have integrated snowshoeing into their exercise routine and use walking poles for additional balance and stability. Like Nordic walking, snowshoeing can provide significant cardiovascular benefits as it requires more effort than walking on regular ground due to the resistance provided by the snow.

If you would like to use your walking poles for snowshoeing we would like to provide one key tip. The height adjustment for your poles is slightly different than for Nordic walking. For each, you adjust your pole height so that your grip is at a 90 degree angle with your elbow. When Nordic walking you would then lower the pole height just a couple of inches so that your grip is slightly lower than your elbow.

A small difference perhaps but a key tip to remember to help make you successful while you are out there!
