Snowshoes have been around for thousands of years, and until very recently were always made of wood and animal hide. We have tried them all, including the modern version made of aluminum and plastic. These modern shoes have their place but not at our camp. The light powder snow of our area is best enjoyed on these old traditional “woodies”. Sure, like all of our vintage wooden boats, they take some time and attention to keep them in shape but this is what we do.
Our Sleighs are our winter “Snow Boats”. Hand built by craftsmen of another era, they are the stars of our winter events. We take great pride in keeping these old style sleighs in top working order. Our teams of draft horses would not be happy pulling anything less than the best.
