Today’s Groupon lets you scamper through a snow-covered winter wonderland with the agility of a man dressed as a hare. For $59, you’ll strap on state-of-the-art snowshoes and hit the pine-trimmed trails for a half-day outdoor exploration with Denver Adventures, a $99 value.

Your customized, mountastical mission includes transportation to the single-track trails, energy-getting grub (a Powerbar and a sports drink), a local guide, a thesaurus that contains 100 words for snow, and the newest CD from Canadian reggae artist Snow. With your feet comfortably fastened into your oversized snow slippers, you’ll easily amble through once-troublesome terrain and take in the awe-inspiring views of the scenic slopes. Be sure to bundle up—the trail’s unkindly climes could be as much as 20 degrees cooler than the city’s—and bring bottled water.

Unlike more coordinated cool-weather activities (snowboarding, skiing, ice diving), snowshoeing is easy to learn. And since you’ll be burning up to 45% more calories than walking or running at the same speed, it’s also a great place to work off all the bundt cakes you consumed during the holidays.

Get this Groupon as a holiday present for your whole family and do something active this year instead of watching TBS’s 24-hour Gangs of New York holiday movie marathon.

History of The Showshoe

Snowshoes make traveling through the snow a treat. Here’s a brief history of snowshoes:

2,000 BC: Early man invents the snowshoe and immediately uses it to move to a place where snowshoes are unnecessary.
1510: European colonists see the snowshoes of Native Americans and, instead of asking to borrow them, invent smallpox.
1959: Alaska becomes the 49th state—one year after President Eisenhower heavily invests in Amalgamated Snowshoe. A conspiracy? Or something more sinister?
2015: Snowshoes become unnecessary as a universe-encompassing white light gives almost everyone the ability to fly.

Awesome staff, great way to spend a few hours. Dress appropriately because it gets chilly on those lines! And girls, bring a hairtie!
