I would like to purchase snowshoes as a gift for some adults who are not experienced snowshoers but are athletic, outdoorsy, and live in an area that gets a moderate amount of natural snow. I have only been snowshoeing once before (*loved* it, but just rented the snowshoes from the base lodge of a ski area), so I don't know anything about brands, sizes, and such. Can anyone make recommendations? What do I need to know before making my purchase? Is this a purchase I can make online?
Y'all are the best, in advance.
