Six miles is a long way breaking trail with snowshoes, especially if the snow is powdery. The snow won't support your weight and will cascade atop the snowshoe making each step a chore. It can be done but if you are humping a heavy pack you best be in good physical shape.
Nothing beats winter camping methinks but I would target a shorter distance, set up a base camp, and explore from there. Have fun!
