I'm asking because shoveling at 4 inches of snow can be a workout in itself, and with me being in the lake-effect belt of Michigan... well, I probably have to shovel at least 6 inches to a foot of snow. Please make it more fun for the people who live in extremely snowy areas!
Absolutely support this recommendation also. 🙌🏼 #ShovelChallenge
Thanks for submitting your idea to add snow shoveling as an activity type. We know it can be a very strenuous activity. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.
Yes! I live in da Yoop and this (shoveling snow using Yooper Scooper) is often my main strength training activity - especially when we get big and beautiful dumps, and shoveling lasts upwards of an hour!!
What an excellent idea! I spend several hour-long sessions per year shoveling snow (US Midwest) and I’d like to track it!
It would be really cool if a device manufacturer like Garmin or Wahoo came out with a smart snow shovel that tracked your shoveling. It could track your GPS position, the amount of snow you've shoveled, the temperature throughout the shoveling... All this data could be written in to the activity file and then appear on Strava as a snow shoveling activity!
Snow shoveling is actually quite a heavy task and should be added to the possible activities.
Norwegian here. Completely agree, 30 mins with the push shovel and my shoulders are burning and i need to shower. Way more strenuous than a walk.
Haha I can relate! Writting from cold and snowy Quebec, Canada. Here we use snow sleighs as there is just too much snow (not this year tho), and that is far less a heavy task. Wouldn't hesitate to throw on my strava if it were an accepted activity!
