Snow shoes

Snowshoes are available for purchase at many sporting goods and outdoor activity stores. For adults, the typical price range is about $130 to $300, and for children $60 to $150. A sturdy pair of trekking poles, which can also be used for hiking and cross-country skiing, average about $60. For those looking to rent, REI provides the service at its stores in Boston, Framingham, Hingham, and Reading.
