[INFOGRAPHIC] Calories Burned Snowshoeing for Men & Women

Have you ever wondered how many calories you burned while snowshoeing? So did we!

We decided to put on our research hats and help solve the question, "how many calories does the average snowshoer burn per hour?" Then, we took that question a few steps further to get a more granular breakdown of calories burned by men, women, weights, heights, aged groups, and by race. We are excited to share our findings with you in our infographic below.

Our Methodology

Step 1: We compiled and organized CDC data from the National Health Statistics Reports

Step 2: Using Captain Calculator, we ran calculations for calories burned per hour based off average weight in pounds for each of our breakouts

Step 3: We organized the aggregated data points into a illustrative format in our [INFOGRAPHIC] Calories Burned Snowshoeing for Men and Women (see below)
