That being said. We are heading for the dead of winter and there will be days when our high won't even hit zero for the day. (Tomorrow is actually forecast for that already.) That will usually be joined by a wind chill factor that will make it feel it is -30 or -40. We can stay there for days at a time. When the weather is like that it is dangerous to spend extended periods outdoors. I'm just trying to be practical and think ahead for when we are in the deep freeze and I can't exercise outside for a week.
I've always wanted to try snowshoeing but I haven't thought I could do it. Maybe this year I'll try it. There must be someplace I can rent a pair in the area.
