Yukon Charlie's Ambassadorship
Joining the Yukon Charlie's team has been such a great adventure for our family. This winter we have gotten more snow than the past couple years combined so it was the perfect year for us to venture into the world of snowshoeing. Yukon Charlie's were awesome enough to send us snowshoes for each of us. I have to admit when they came for my 1 year old I was hesitant that they would fit or that she would be able to walk in them. Man was I wrong! Not only did they fit but it was so fun watching her run around trying to keep up with her big sisters!
But of course, when you are that young your little legs get tired and you need the awesome seat dad provides. We decided to size up in weight for our shoes so that it would accommodate carrying a child in a carrier and my ever growing pregnant body. I can see the benefit of the added surface area and have not had any issues with the increased sized.
Close to our house there is a trail that is perfect for little kids and even better as a first time snowshoe outing. The trail is nice and flat and only .5 miles out to a river where it opens up to wonderful views. Of course in the winter it is totally frozen over and covered in snow which makes it a wonderful place to run around free! The snow out on this river was pretty deep due to a heavy snow fall from the previous couple days but I was very impressed at how well not only the girls did but how well the snowshoes kept up with them. We only had one case of our 3 year old losing a shoe but thanks to the amazingly quick and easy straps it was a breeze to get her back in her shoe and on her way.
Whether you are new to snowshoeing or have been doing it for years I am confident that Yukon Charlie's will have the perfect pair for you (and your littles)!
