Did you know that?

The origin of snowshoes goes back a long way, as far as 6000 B.C., a period to which some cave paintings found in Mongolia date, showing men with snowshoe-like tools on their feet.

Originally made of woven rope and wood, they are a tool for moving easily on foot in fresh snow as they increase the surface area trampled and consequently facilitate 'floating'.
