ometimes the day is defined by our first steps: the first steps out of bed in the morning, the steps out of the door to work, and the first step into your house as you return at night. When the routine is broken and you have a choice over these steps, where do you want go? What steps do you want to take and where do you want to take them? With an aim to be healthier and take more steps in a day, which steps stand apart? When the halls of the office become the chosen snowshoe trail in the winter, which steps are the favorite? The first step into snow? The last step before the summit? Or is it the last step back when returning to the car? That’s what we want you to think about as you set off on your own adventures this winter — which steps did you take that made the day significant and stand apart from all those that are routine? We hope your first step is to read through the catalog to decide which snowshoes are a good fit for your adventures this winter. Your second step is to start planning more steps off the beaten path. Isn’t that one of the main benefits of snowshoeing? The ability to step easily off the trail and explore where you’d like to go? HOW MANY STEPS can you take in 12 hours? That’s how long it took the talented Simon Beck to make this Sierpinski triangle with the Tubbs logo. Each edge is 787 feet!
