>> I didn't add the winter sport package to our travel insurance as I said we wouldn't been skiing. Just wondering if we would need it so don't want to upgrade until I know what is possible.
I can't answer your question about snowshoe hikes, but you might not need to change your insurance cover even if you go snowshoeing. There is probably a definition in your policy of what snow activities will only be covered with an additional premium. In my policy it stated:
Snow Skiing, Snowboarding and Snowmobiling
If You wish to be covered for these activities during Your Journey, You need to pay an extra premium.
The slower pace of snowshoeing wouldn't carry the same risk of injury as skiing etc, which is probably why it wasn't specified separately in terms of cover.
