Snowshoes are an old human "patent" and were used mainly in the northern countries (Scandinavia, Alpine countries, mountainous Balkans) but also in many regions of mountainous Greece. The constructions varied, usually they were made of hornwood or other flexible green wood, which formed a circle. Inside this circle, a rope was woven forming frames, squares, with a relatively dense weave. Wearing it on the feet, moving in the snow became easier because they simply did not sink. It was mainly used by hunters in our areas. The name snowshoe naturally derives from its racket-like shape. Today, of course, it has become quite a famous activity abroad, allowing ordinary winter hikers to enjoy hiking in the snow, without any particular technical difficulties!
