Snowshoes originated 6000 years ago in central asia and they used the snowshoe to cross the straight.
They eventually made their way to other parts of the world that experience heavy snow fall.
Now you can learn how to make your own snow shoes thanks to a class being offered at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center... The class is scheduled for January 19 and 26-th but you need to register by December 7-th.
