Snowshoeing is a winter sport that just about anyone can do and it is becoming more and more popular. It is a great way to enjoy Minnesota's winter and peaceful surroundings as well as a great way to get some exercise. Spring Grove Community Ed has snowshoes for rent so people can try out the sport before investing in a pair that, with poles, usually cost more than $100 each. All rentals have a $25/pair deposit that is refunded when the snowshoes are returned in the same condition. A daily rental fee is $3/pair or $5/pair for a weekend. There are four sizes to choose from and each pair also comes with a set of adjustable poles. Contact Lynn Anderson at Spring Grove Community Ed, (507) 498-3812, for more information about renting a pair of snowshoes. Enjoy an outdoor winter activity with your family!
