FAQs – How do I get up after I’ve fallen on snowshoes?

If you’re wearing a pack, you are going to have to take it off. Straighten out your shoes and place your poles in an X-shape. Then push up while leaning into the cross of the “X.” If you’ve fallen on a moderate slope, position your shoes so they’re parallel and facing across the slope.

If you’ve fallen on a steep slope, position your shoes so they’re parallel and facing across the slope. Hold your two ski poles as if they were one, with one hand holding the top and the other holding the poles near the basket. With your shoulders and poles facing the uphill side of the slope, push yourself into a standing position.

If that doesn’t work, loosen your bindings and use your snowshoes as leverage platforms to perform a push up. Position your two hands on one snowshoe’s tip and tail and use the other snowshoe as a platform for your feet. Then, slowly hoist yourself up.
