If you are used to just picking up your pack and setting out on a ramble then you may discover that travelling on foot in deep snow is a bit more of a physical challenge.
It is quite possible to find yourself wading through snow that comes up to your thighs. If you have a heavy pack it will drive you even deeper into that snow. Travelling any distance under those conditions is exhausting.
Fortunately, it is not a new problem and mankind has already applied ingenuity to solving it. Getting your footwear right is a start of course but moving that load off your back is a big help too.
In these pages you will find a few suggestions based upon the ways I have chosen to deal with things but as always, there are many other ways that can be used as well.
