Good shoes should place your feet firmly on the ground. A strong sole, ankle support, and waterproof materials are your best best for winter shoes. Also, ensure they are comfortable, warm, and light.

2. Look ahead

If you’re walking on ice or snow, plan your steps. Always see where your feet will land next, so you’re ready. Sometimes, in extreme weather, you‘ll need to share the road with vehicles – be careful.

3. Pay attention

Just as you need to see everything, you also need to hear. Don’t distract yourself by plugging your ears and listening to music. You must be able to hear if a snowmobile is approaching.

4. Walk slowly

Walking fast is the fastest way to a fall. Better to be late than arrive early with a dislocation. Take your time. Walk slowly. If you feel there’s ice under the cover of snow, choose a different route.

Winter may be a difficult time to move around safely, but it’s still beautiful. You just need to be prepared.

Good luck on your snowy travels!
