    Just don't go on a Monday or Tuesday. The Winter Adventure Center that rents snowshoes is closed on those days. No rentals after 2:30pm. Need to wear Socks and shoes for sure, but winter attire is suggested. Of course, it depends on how much snow and where you want to walk to see if snowshoes are needed.
