More info about Snowshoeing in Russia:

Russia is an immense country comprising most of North Asia. For snowshoeing and snow athletes, this translates into an epic swath of undiscovered wilderness to explore. The country is easily the largest on Earth in size, made up of one-eighth of Earth’s land mass, though its population is quite small in relation to its overall size. Snowshoeing expeditions can be enjoyed in close proximity to Moscow, or far away in the most isolated areas of greater Siberia. Kamchatka features mountain peaks descending into the Bering Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk. Cities like Magadan, Yakutsk, and Vladivostok also hold appeal for East Russian snowshoeing
