A New Thanksgiving Day Tradition

Snowshoeing in the Northeast US

So grandma has the turkey in the oven, and all of the scrumptious sides are sliced, diced, and prepped for eating—so now what?! You could play dominoes with Aunt Frances, but she gets so competitive. You could go yell at the TV, watching football with Uncle Bob. OR you could embark on a brand new Thanksgiving Day tradition, a Turkey Trot on snowshoes with the family!

Leave grandma behind to tend to the basting, and Uncle Bob with his losing team. Grab the rest of your family and friends, slip into a pair of Tubbs Snowshoes and head outside! There are so many ways this new tradition will make your Thanksgiving better, but here are a few:

  1. You’ll get away from the smell of fresh apple pie and candied sweet potatoes—those taunting smells that coax you into the kitchen even when dinner isn’t ready for another two hours.
  2. You’ll get a great workout, and a jumpstart to burning off that extra side of gravy. Snowshoeing burns between 450-1000 calories per hour!
  3. You’ll spend family time together being active outside. Studies show that kids who are active with their families as children are more likely to become active adults.
  4. Best of all, you’ll return to a delicious meal with your loved ones.

With all of those benefits, who wouldn’t want to start a new Thanksgiving tradition? This year, pack your snowshoes to your family get-together and get outside!
