Snow shoe distributes your weight over a larger area of snow which makes you go on top of the snow so that you do not have to go through it. It is an historical transport method that has returned as popular sport in recent years. For example, in France, snow shoes is the second largest winter sport after alpine skiing.
Here in Sweden and in the Nordic countries, we have historically been better on skiing because it was Northborn's preferred means of transport on snow. The modern snow shoes are inspired by the snow shoes used by Native North Americans. They are oblong or pear-shaped, unlike those used traditionally in northern Europe that are round or square.
