Snow covers sports in winter can be tricky, but it can also be life-changing.
With temperatures dropping below zero in the snowpack, many outdoor sports have adapted by introducing special ice packs or making other tweaks to their training routines.
For example, snow-covered hockey teams have been playing in freezing conditions for years and now are often using artificial ice to help reduce the ice time in games.
But while some teams are doing the work, others are just waiting for the right conditions to come around.
In many cases, snow covers will allow the game to go on, but not necessarily to the level of the game.
The next time you watch a snow-shoeing game, don’t be afraid to put on your goggles and get ready to get to work.
