Hi, my name is Stephen Nichipor, I'm a professional mountain guide with Bretton Woods Ski Resort, and I'm gonna show you what to pack for snow shoeing. When you go snow shoeing, you'll want to carry what you need to stay warm and energetic without carrying too much weight. The basics you'll want for most trips are appropriate clothing, food, water, small first aid kit and a map and compass. Here I have a small backpack that allows me to carry all of the essentials without weighing me down. I packed my first aid kit in the bottom of the pack, because I won't need to use it very often. Next I pack the lightweight puffy jacket that I can put on to stay warm during breaks. Water can go on top of that so I can get a quick drink if I take a short break. This pack allows me to use a hydration bladder and has pockets on the belt for snacks. This keeps them handy, which means I'll eat and drink more often, keeping my energy level up. Carrying a trail map is a good idea, even on short hikes. A typographic map is important for remote areas, but a simple trail map is important even on groomed trails. Finally, a cell phone to communicate in emergencies is a good idea. You may want to turn it off or put it on airplane mode so you can save battery power in case you need, and so you can focus on your surroundings rather than text messages and phone calls.
