This question already has an answer here:
We rarely have snow where I live, and when we do, I want to enjoy it the most. However, walking in snow is hard, and to get to fun places I need snowshoes.
It seems a very simple device - just a board tied to my boots - but there probably are some principles to ensure the device is going to be usable. For example, how to ensure it will not twist to the side?
So, how can I improvise snowshoes? I have preparation time of 1 week, but cannot test it (the snow is not here yet). The device is going to be one-time use (put on in the morning, use during the day, improvise something else next year).
