In 1976, at the Manitoba school, as part of the Festival du Voyageur there were snowshoe races of various distances. The festival was in it’s infancy and looked to the school for contributions to the races. The students made most of the trophies and then went on to win these trophies back in the various race distances.
This gallery of photos show some of the snowshoe “legends” of that time. Send us your memories of the Festival.
