If you love snow excursions or winter sports, a perfect destination is the Appennines in Reggio, and here we would like to offer a calendar of suitable events. But first, we should explain what we mean by “snow rackets”: designed to allow you to move easily across the fresh snow on foot, they easily fit over water-proof boots or shoes, and allow you to walk on fresh snow without falling or slipping.
Insert your foot so that the heel and toe of your shoe are immediately above the toe and heel of the ”racket” and then lace them together at the front and back. They are very popular for snow excursions, and to make walking in the snow easier you also use ski poles, similiar to those used in skiing. We strongly recommend the use of the rackets, because they make you more stable.
We have enjoyed a beautiful snow-racket excursion in the snow, detailed here.
