Nice job. It would be great to know how much the equipment costs, which type would work best for someone trying for the first time, etc. Also, it would be fun to reach out an collaborate with someone in this community to come up with an instructible for home-made snowshoes.

A super job, Cindy. Clear and easy steps to follow for a wonderful outdoor sport with a cost of snowshoes only! The wonderful woods, trails are free to most, thank goodness!
