Winter hiking and backpacking
Pulkas, Nordic skates and snow shoes bring a new perspective to winter outdoor life. Snow shoes come in two main types: models with plastic/composite bodies are light and easy to use, while larger models with a metal tube frame offer the biggest buoyancy. Just choose the model that suits your use: for deep snow, larger is simply better but for trail use composite snow shoes are a good choice.
A pulka is like a trailer behind you: you won’t have to carry the weight, you just have to get it moving. There’s no shortage of space in a pulka and you don’t have to be as diligent with saving weight, either.
