    Iím a Chad. Any pics of the snowshoer? Usually I can tell if there is any chance from a few tasteful art pics of the subject. You are welcome.

I was really posting this because this is what I see when I see people with snow shoes, theyíre not athletes, they just want to get out and do something for an hour.
    Around here they call that kosher on some trails. They are groomed for ďmixed useĒ. Usually dog crap is picked up and they stay out of the classic track. If Iím gonna put on snow shoes, I prefer off piste or snow shoe track. Way easier to walk than on a flat groomer. Iíve been a handful of times with my wife either when there is not enough snow for the resort to open lift and on a few shitty icy days that were way more fun tromping around the forest.

    In places like Bend with a bigger XC ski contingent the two tracks tend to coexist in peace. I assume thatís because XC skiers are plentiful enough that some of them have yelled at errant snowshoers and threatened them with gorp.
    And Bend is no where near the Bay Area continent of wealth that is always in a hurry to get to the snow and fuck it up for others.
